Stewardship Workday at Ruthven Nature Area

July 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register at:

Ruthven Nature Area’s unique landscape includes a kame – a sandy hill left behind by melting glaciers. This hill overlooks Gallup Pond and the Huron River valley. The slopes and different soils in this park represent an opportunity for great biodiversity! After many years of diligent work, NAP and its dedicated volunteers have expanded the natural habitat allowing the wildflowers and other native plants to thrive and attract native wildlife. Come out to help pull invasive weeds by hand and continue this work supporting biodiversity.

Meet at the park entrance off Huron Parkway. If driving: park at the Gallup boat launch parking lot, then follow the park path and use the crosswalk to get to the Ruthven Huron Parkway entrance (look for the NAP truck). Volunteers will pull herbaceous weeds from the ground by hand. Workday sites have unpaved trails and require going off-trail. Preregister 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).
