Sharing at the Earth Day celebration

Kids and other friends of the Wet Meadows turned out in large numbers at last Sunday's Earth Day Celebration.

They dressed up for the All-Species parade.

Also, Super Swampers demonstrated the storm water model (made from three paint trays) and talked to many kids and parents.

Sharing our info and enthusiasm has a long tradition.

Super Swampers Build a Path

The Super Swampers met today and worked on a new path going across Wet Meadow II. It was a little bit snowy at the beginning, but it got better and we all warmed up with the hard work.

Feel free to walk on the new path as much as you want.

12 people, 1.5 hours= 18 volunteer hours of work

Weather to burn - finally

The prescribed ecological burn at the Buhr Park Childrens' Wet Meadow on Wednesday, April 2 was a success.

Many families and adult spectators gathered to celebrate Spring and watch the burn.

Trained staff from the City of Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation unit explained the purpose of the burn and safety considerations. They conducted the burn while the spectators oohed and aahed.
