Spring Botany and Horner’s Woods Workday

Saturday May 20 – 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Spring Botany and Horner’s Woods Workday

Field Trip Leader: Sylvia Taylor

Join volunteers from the Michigan Botanical Club and MBGNA to scout for the invasive garlic mustard and help with light trail maintenance at Horner Woods, a wildflower sanctuary NE of Matthaei Botanical Gardens.  Volunteers will also enjoy seeing large patches of a lovely native wildflower, Twinleaf, which will be in peak bloom in late April.  Please wear light colored or easily visible field clothes, and sturdy closed-toe shoes.  We provide tools and orientation.  Minors are welcome with permission forms; those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Meet in the west lobby at Matthaei Botanical Gardens 1800 N. Dixboro Rd. to caravan to Horner Woods.
