Stewardship Workday at Barton Nature Area

November 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register at

Popular for sunsets, photography, fishing, birding, or a scenic stroll, Barton Nature Area provides access to Barton Pond, which provides 85% of Ann Arbor’s drinking water. The park is a matrix of old field, dry prairie, wet meadow and shrubland, mesic forest, and emergent marsh. Come enjoy the crisp fresh air of a fall day while volunteering to cut and remove invasive shrubs to preserve this very valuable ecosystem. Meet at – the south entrance on West Huron River Drive, approximately ¼ mile from the intersection of M-14 and Main Street.

Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is encouraged. NAP continues to monitor recommendations from health officials; please stay home if you are feeling ill.
