Stewardship Workday at Barton Nature Area

Wild seed collection is one of the easiest conservation activities you can do with NAP. It’s appropriate for all ages, and with more than 250 native plant species recorded at Barton, it’s an optimal place for NAP to collect wild seeds. NAP strives to collect and disperse seeds from local genotypes so that planted seeds are more likely to adapt and create a successful habitat. During this workday we will also be cutting and removing invasive shrubs. Meet us at the Barton Dam parking lot on Huron River Dr. (map).

Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is encouraged; please stay home if you are feeling ill. NAP continues to monitor recommendations from health officials, volunteers registered for events will be notified in advance of any changes to the workday. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle and leather gloves. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Register here.
