Stewardship Workday at Redbud Nature Area
October 15, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

There is something magical about Redbud Nature Area – maybe because it’s the last undeveloped area along Malletts Creek, maybe it’s the giant skunk cabbages that decorate the mucky soil, or maybe it’s the presence of the largest group of redbud trees of any Ann Arbor park. Redbud trees are best known for their spring beauty, but did you know the bark and roots of this tree were traditionally used to treat cold and flu symptoms? The redbud tree is the perfect symbol for this small but mighty park – branches tender enough for deer to eat but with a large taproot that protects it from wind, storms, and ice. Join other volunteers in cutting and removing invasive shrubs here. Meet at the park entrance at the intersection of Parkwood Avenue and Jeanne Street (map: tinyurl.com/RedbudParkwood).
