Volunteers sought to fight invasives

Bring your work gloves, some water and a desire to better the environment to a workbee planned for 10 a.m. to noon Friday at Clay Cliffs Natural Area.

Clay Cliffs, which includes frontage on north Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan, is owned by Leland Township and managed by the Leelanau Conservancy. It’s located off M-22 north of Leland.

Conservancy volunteers will join forces again with the Invasive Species Network to remove woody invasive shrubs at the Clay Cliffs Natural Area. Included are autumn olive shrubs.

Workers will use “weed wrenches” to help pull larger plants from sensitive areas and along the trail system.

Further information is available by calling the Conservancy at 256-9665.
