Stewardship Workday at Barton Nature Area

July 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Pre-register through VolunteerHub

Across the river from Bird Hills, Barton offers a different experience of nature than the steep climbs and sprawling forest. Most of Barton is flat and contains large areas of prairie, wetland, and old (farm) fields. You can get right down to the river on some of the trails and get a great view of Barton Dam. Spend the morning with NAP and other volunteers to give the trails at Barton some much needed trimming and love—and meanwhile enjoy the benefits of spending time in nature. Meet at the Barton Dam parking lot on Huron River Drive. Workday sites have unpaved trails and require going off-trail.

Pre-register through VolunteerHub so NAP can plan on enough staff and supplies for a safe and successful event. For your safety, wear long pants, tall socks, and closed-toe shoes. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. More information: How to prepare for a NAP workday (PDF).
