About

Join The Nature Conservancy in removing the invasive shrub honeysuckle. The same techniques you learn here can be used in your yard or any other natural area for any woody plant that you want to get rid of. We will cut and treat but don't need to pile. There will be an interesting walk through the preserve to get to the work area, seeing prairie butterflies, grassland birds, and wildflowers on the way. We provide all the equipment and training you need.

We will meet by North Raisin Center Highway 0.2 miles south of the intersection of Ives Rd and N Raisin Center Hwy south of Tecumseh (put those road names in your GPS and go 0.2 miles south when your GPS says you have arrived). This is NOT by the big Nature Conservancy sign on Sutton Road but by the small temporary sign on Raisin Center Highway, the same place we have always met. North Raisin Center Highway is Evans Street in Tecumseh. If you are new, be sure you are at the meeting area by 8:50 because you will never find the work area otherwise. We will finish by 1 PM.
