Stewardship Saturday
Saturday, February 24, 2024 
10 AM - 12 PM

Blue Water River Walk County Park
2210 Military St., Port Huron, MI 48060

Event by Friends of the St. Clair River 

and St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission

St. Clair County Parks' wetland project at the south end of the River Walk was designed to provide wet prairie habitat for pollinators, amphibians, birds and other wildlife. The problem is, woody species want it to be a thicket!

Help us keep this project a haven for turtles, fish, and waterlilies by joining us on Saturday, February 24th to remove invasive shrubs and trees. Bring your favorite work gloves and hand pruning tools; we'll have extra if you don't have your own. Meet us at the SOUTH entrance of the park: 2210 Military Street. Dress for the weather in clothing that can get wet, muddy or snagged.

All ages and abilities welcome - we can modify tasks to suit abilities. Contact brooke@scriver.org or klyons@stclaircounty.org for more information.

Thank you to the St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission and Lake St. Clair CISMA for supporting stewardship and restoration work at Blue Water River Walk County Park.
Funded in part by St. Clair County and the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program.
