Named in memory of an Ann Arbor environmentalist, Mary Beth Doyle Park is one of Ann Arbor’s larger parks with 81 acres of green space. Inside the park you’ll find a variety of habitats: spacious woodlands, sensitive wetlands, and even a pond bustling with waterfowl and turtles! We need your help in restoring this park’s woodlands by removing invasive hedge parsley to make space for native woodland wildflowers. Pre-registration through Rec-1 is required – register here - space is limited. Participants must wear a mask and maintain a 6-ft distance from others at all times. Please wear long pants, closed-toed shoes, and gardening gloves. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Compost bags and know-how provided. Meeting location will be provided after registration.

How to Apply

In addition to a face mask, please wear gardening gloves; dress in long pants thick enough to protect your legs from thorns, brush, poison ivy, ticks, and mosquitoes; close-toed shoes that can stand up to mud; and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. It is recommended to wear bug spray and bring a full water bottle. Consider wearing sunscreen and bringing a small snack as well. Most of our work is mildly labor intensive, so please be prepared to work outdoors for a duration of time and in any weather type (light rain/snow, hot/cold days, etc.).
