Take Advantage of our FREE Walks
Our organization offers free walks that last about 90 minutes. All are done at a leisurely pace with time taken to enjoy and learn about the surrounding plants, trees and animals. We have anywhere from four to 25 people depending on weather and time of year. No reservations are necessary. Just c'mon out!
Our Spring 2020 newsletter is only online. No print copies. Here is our upcoming activity schedule. Please check our Facebook page for updates since everything is subject to change and cancellation.
Ø 50th Anniversary Earth Day BUT NO ACTIVITY
Wed., April 22
Although this is the golden anniversary of Earth Day and we’d normally celebrate with a nature walk followed by a cleanup and improvement project, this year the Governor’s order and common sense dictate that we don’t. However, we invite you to get outside and clean up your home and neighborhood, and perhaps make improvements around your home that will help the earth (like build a rain garden or install a rain barrel).
Ø Wildflower Walk
Sat., May 9, 10 a.m., Koppernick Section
Parking along road near entrance, Koppernick Rd. is west of Hix Rd. and north of Joy Rd.
Flower list provided. Slow walk along the trail allowing us to enjoy native wildflowers and the many trees. Walk occurs rain or shine but depends on state restrictions.
Ø Rouge Rescue
Saturday, May 16, 8:30 a.m. registration. Hix Section.
Parking along entrance road, west side Hix Road, north of Warren Road.
We coordinate in the Preserve on behalf of Friends of the Rouge. Lots of projects, including removing trash; moving floating wood; cutting/stacking invasive honeysuckle shrubs; or removing trash from floodplain. Dress to get dirty (long pants, long sleeved shirt). Gloves, tools, water, cleanup station, and first aid kit provided.
