If you’ve been out to the docks overlooking Bear Marsh in the northeast corner of Bear Creek Nature Park, you probably noticed that a lot of glossy buckthorn disappeared around one of the docks. The Southeast Michigan Student Conservation Crew (SEMSCC), via Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy, worked at Bear Creek Nature Park in July to help control buckthorn. You can actually see the marsh now!
The crew consisted of high school students from southeast Michigan. Through this program, they learned how to care for natural areas. They also learned to work as a team to accomplish a big task.
Thanks for all the work you did!
