When considering the harm caused to nature, we usually think of humans: discarding trash or encroaching on natural wilderness to build yet another luxury condo. But in Ann Arbor, there’s a more subtle, but still insidious, problem: invasive plant species like honeysuckle and buckthorn are strangling native plant life. During Stewardship Workdays, team up with other volunteers and members of Ann Arbor’s Natural Area Preservation team to remove invasive plant life and help nature thrive. Stewardship Workdays take place during weekends at parks around Ann Arbor. The first workday is on Saturday, September 10.
