Led by Trustee Linda Busha and Master Gardener Rose Woodruff, a team of hearty volunteers (including yours truly) cut down invasive species and laid mulch at the Nature Preserve in Sturtevant.

The goal is to keep invasive species of plants, shrubs and trees from overtaking the native plants, flowers and grasses so the area can thrive and provide a nice retreat for residents.
