- New Grants to Improve Access and Accessibility - The Metroparks Planning Department has been working diligently to expand trail connectivity throughout the parks while trying to improve accessibility of the trails. Several grants received in May and June will aid in this effort.
- Invasive Species are Fought by Volunteers - The Natural Resources Department hosts several volunteer days in the spring to target these early invasives. While there are many invasive plants on Metroparks property, we target garlic mustard and dame’s rocket in the spring because of their short life cycle. Both plants are biennials, growing a rosette the first year and blooming and going to seed the second. Garlic mustard starts growing early in the spring, flowering in early May and going to seed by mid-June.
- Give Me Spots on My Apples - Spring is the time for wildflowers in Michigan, but it is also a time for spring invasives. Invasive plant species are one of the first plants you will see in the spring, popping up and growing leaves right as our native plants are just starting to get going. The worst spring offenders are garlic mustard and dame’s rocket. “National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them,” according to pollinator.org.
The Huron-Clinton Metroparks is a regional park system created in 1940 by the citizens of Southeast Michigan, providing excellent recreational and educational opportunities while serving as stewards of its natural resources.
