Upcoming Hikes & Events
Hike Clay Cliffs, Saturday Sept. 10th, 10 am
Saturday September 10 10:00 AM Clay Cliffs Natural Area
Join docents Ann McInnis, Susan Fehrenbach, and Mary Tris in exploring this diverse 105 acre natural area. What clues are there that suggest some of the activities of the early Leelanau homesteaders? What flora and fauna now use many of Clay Cliffs’ ecological communities. What evidence might we discover to confirm this? How might wildlife already be preparing for the colder seasons ahead? Keeping our ears and eyes open, what surprises and discoveries might present new and fun mysteries of Nature to explore and figure out? Can there be anything more engaging than exploring Nature?
Shrub Removal Workbee at Kehl Lake — Friday, September 16th 1:00 pm
Help out the LC for an afternoon at Kehl Lake Natural Area. We’ll be removing woody invasive species that exist along the trail system and in some sensitive areas. Kehl Lake is home to a large diversity of native plants and by removing invasive plants in the “vector zones” we can help control the spread.
Invasive Species Network Workbee at Clay Cliffs — Friday, September 23rd 10:00-Noon
The Leelanau Conservancy will join forces again with the Invasive Species Network to remove woody invasive shrubs at the Clay Cliffs Natural Area. We’ll use “weed wrenches” to help pull larger plants from sensitive areas and along the trail system. Bring gloves and water.
