Restoration Workday at Searles Nature Preserve

August 26, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free

Did you know Washtenaw Audubon owns a nature preserve? We do! Located just a mile south of Rolling Hills County Park, Searles Nature Preserve is a 50 acre natural area that hosts the headwaters of Stony Creek. Join us as we work to remove woody invasive species and create habitat for native plants and insects that support the birds we all love.

With 97% of North American land birds relying on animal protein to raise their young, it is critical that there’s enough native habitat to support the populations of insects required for them to raise their young. Most of these insects, largely moth and butterfly caterpillars, have evolved to require specific, native, host plants for successful reproduction. This is why it is so important that we continue to foster the biodiversity necessary to support all the beautiful birds. More on this here.

Tools and know how will be provided. Please bring leather work gloves, wear long pants, tall socks, and closed-toe shoes or boots.

Directions: Meet at the entrance to the preserve on Bolla Road between Crane and Stony Creek Roads. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/hWKBSpjtx8ZY4r8n9
