Stewardship Workday at Ruthven Nature Area
September 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Pre-register through VolunteerHub https://nap.a2gov.org/Ruthven093023
NAP staff and volunteers have put in years of hard work to restore the native plant communities here, removing invasive shrubs that have a negative impact on wildlife habitat. Come out to continue this important work so more native plants can thrive. 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 hand tools to cut small-to-medium shrubs. 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).
