Invasive Plants Field Trip (Kalamazoo)

Sponsoring Organization: Kalamazoo Area Wild Ones and Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy

Date: June 5

Start Time: 6:30 pm

End Time: 8:30 pm

Location : Bow in the Clouds Preserve, Nazareth Rd., between Gull Rd. & Parchmount Ave., Kalamazoo, Michigan 49048

Description of the Event: 

Free admission and open to all!

Please join members of the Kalamazoo Chapter of Wild Ones and Nate Fuller, SWMLC's Director of Conservation and Stewardship, for an evening excursion in search of the 'bad guys', the invasive plants that still lurk in Bow in the Clouds' wetlands and woods. Learn to identify these pushy plants and find out what SWMLC is doing to control them at this urban gem of a preserve.


DIRECTIONS: The preserve is on Nazareth Road (about one mile west of Sprinkle Road), behind Nazareth Campus (home of the Sisters of St. Joseph, 3427 Gull Rd.). From Gull Road, turn north onto Nazareth Road. The preserve entrance is about half a mile ahead on the left side of the road. Look for our old gray barn up off the road. It's a steep drive along a sharp curve, so be careful coming and leaving. Pull in through the gate and park in the nice new parking lot.

Education Credit Hours: 2
