Michigan Botanical Club Presents: Lakeplain Wet Prairie Restoration at Sibley Prairie Nature Preserve


April 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Cost: Free
The Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy (SMLC) is in year five of restoring the remnant lakeplain wet prairie at its Sibley Prairie Nature Preserve – West Prairie site in Brownstown Township. This presentation highlights the rare plants and obligate species found at the site, the restoration partnership with The Nature Conservancy’s Oak Openings program, and what the future could look like for this globally unique habitat; as well as the challenges and benefits of working to protect this declining natural community within an urban setting.
Julie McLaughlin is the stewardship and outreach manager for the Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy. She has a master’s in conservation ecology and environmental informatics from the University of Michigan, and has worked in land management and stewardship throughout southeast Michigan as well as Indiana, Colorado, and Montana.
NOTE: Program is free and open to all. Memberships in the Michigan Botanical Club Huron Valley Chapter are encouraged.
