Invasive Species Pull – Delhi

July 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Location: East Delhi Parking Lot, Delhi Metropark, 3902 E Delhi Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48103
Date: Saturday July 27th, 10am – 1pm

Join us in removing invasive purple loosestrife from Delhi Metropark. We will meet in the East Delhi parking lot (look for the Metroparks vehicle and blue flag). Volunteers receive free day entry to the park, just let the toll booth attendant know you are at the park for a volunteer workday.

Everyone is welcome! All necessary tools and equipment will be provided, as well as a water cooler and snacks. We will provide gloves, but feel free to bring your favorite pair! Please come dressed for a day outside and off trail in areas that may have poison ivy (closed-toe shoes, long pants, hat, sunscreen).

Purple loosestrife is an invasive perennial that grows in wet areas and along the Huron River at Delhi. It crowds out and take important resources from native plants. Removing it will increase the health of the ecosystem and allows natives to flourish. Native biodiversity is extremely important to support wildlife, native bees, and other insects. Volunteers are a critical part of positively impacting natural areas we wouldn’t be able to otherwise! Your help allows the Metroparks to protect unique ecosystems that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Registration is required. Please register at least 24 hours before the workday. To register, please contact the Natural Resources Volunteer Coordinator, at naturevolunteer@metroparks.com, or 810-494-6053.

Please register so you may be made aware of cancellations. Volunteer opportunities may also be cancelled for severe weather events. These weather events can include extreme heat or heavy rain. Opportunities cancelled due to weather may be rescheduled. Those registered will be notified by email at least 24 hours in advance.

A liability waiver is required; if under 18, a parent/legal guardian needs to sign as well.
