October 1st, 2023 from 2-4pm
Meet at Legacy Land Conservancy's Shatter Preserve
7810 Brookville Road, Plymouth MI (at the corner of Brookville and Curtis Roads)
Join WCCD, Legacy Land Conservancy (Legacy), and graduate students from U-M SEAS for a walk in the woods to learn about beech leaf disease and how to spot it. Much is still unknown about this relatively new disease which can damage and eventually kill both ornamental and native beech trees. We'll meet at Legacy's Shatter Preserve and then carpool to roadside parking at Legacy's nearby Creekshead Preserve. Please wear comfortable footwear and bring water and bug spray. A boot washing station to disinfect gear will be provided. This event is free, but registration is required and slots will be limited to ensure an enjoyable field experience for all attendees. If you are unable to attend, please cancel by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP so we can allow others off the waitlist.
