PRESERVE WORKDAY – Detering Nature Preserve

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

FREE

You can work the land with your own hands!

Help remove the non-native invasive Tree of Heaven and clean up trails in this Kendallville nature preserve located on Round Lake.

This was a “Green Grocer” farm where vegetables were grown and sold to the residents of Kendallville and the surrounding area. Now trees, including many redbuds, grow where corn and beans and other produce once grew. Round Lake forms a wetland boundary along the northeast part of the preserve. Plants include shrubby cinquefoil, red osier dogwood, cattails and sedges. Birds are as varied as the plants, and deer are frequently seen.

The workday spirit is contagious: you might catch yourself laughing and telling tales with land lovers.

We’ll provide a limited number of tools and work gloves. You’re encouraged to bring your own.

Hosted by Evan Hill, land management specialist.
