Join us for Stewardship Saturdays. Our winter project will focus on cutting invasive shrubs, especially glossy and common buckthorn and honeysuckle, in order to help restore the wet mesic flatwoods on the island. Meet on Vista Drive at the parking area across from the athletic fields and building. Map/GPS coordinates: 42.340013, -82.979474
