Service Area: Greater Washtenaw County
Description: Since January 2005, The Huron Arbor Cluster has helped connect people who are interested in learning more about and becoming proficient in natural area stewardship. We offer a tool sharing program; an email update list of local stewardship-related events; and a variety of educational workshops. We also hold monthly informal conversations with volunteer and professional stewards, called Steward’s Circles. These chats cover topics such as winter restoration, using herbicides as a restoration tool, recruiting, training, and retaining volunteers, wetland invaders, and more.
Focus: The Huron Arbor Cluster has two main areas of focus: 1) on the ground conservation action and planning, and 2) educating community members in conservation issues, techniques and other relevant topics. We focus on local stewardship issues and plans to address those concerns through implemented action. We provide unique educational opportunities through events, workshops, activities and online networking to share ideas, information, skills and resources to enable local groups to increase their capacity to care for local land and water.
Huron Arbor cluster also hosts quarterly Professional Stewards Hikes in local natural areas. Those who have been in restoration and stewardship for an extended period of time visit restoration projects and participate in detailed conversations with other professionals. Let us know if you’re interested.
Please feel free to share your questions and ideas with our Cluster. We’d love to have your help in achieving our goals!
