Stewardship Workday at Ruthven Nature Area
July 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Pre-register through VolunteerHub https://nap.a2gov.org/Ruthven072223
The sandy soils here provide a unique ecosystem, inhabited by native grasses and prairie wildflowers. It’s a great place to look for butterflies and birds! You can foster the native plants here by removing the invasive species intruding in this habitat. Meet at the park entrance off Huron Parkway. If driving: park at the Gallup Boat Dock 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 use their hands to pull small-to-medium plants from the ground. 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).
