More than 40 students, staff, and community members recently spent a cold Saturday volunteering at the Pioneer Pond.

Activities included clearing overgrowth around the amphitheater and pond access points (which traditionally have been used for third grade pond habitat studies), trail maintenance, and invasive Buckthorn and Phragmites removal.

The event was coordinated by the AAPS Environmental Education Program, with support from the Pioneer teachers Jenni Wilkening, Dave Russell, and Sarah Collada, University of Michigan Circle K volunteers, and the City of Ann Arbor Natural Areas Preservation.

“The Environmental Education Program staff were overjoyed to see so many students get involved and carry on the longtime tradition of environmental stewardship at Pioneer,” said AAPS Environmental Education teacher Coert Ambrosino.
