Join The Nature Conservancy volunteers pulling and bagging invasive plants from the forest. Before we start we will take a wildflower walk in an area of the preserve that has been restored for a number of years. The invasives removed include garlic mustard, honeysuckle, and dame's rocket. The same techniques you learn here can be used in your yard or any other natural area. Garlic mustard is good eating if you want to take some home and try it. We may encounter Morel mushrooms which you can also take home to eat. We provide all the equipment and training you need. The day concludes with cold Coke and warm, soft chocolate chip cookies.

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.
