Volunteers Get Abbot Habitat Ready for Summer

After the long hard winter, there was lots of cleanup to do in the Abbot Habitat last weekend.

The Habitat is a special nature area in the shady area tucked behind our C and D Centrums (wings) of the school. It includes native plants, feeding stations for birds and squirrels, and a miniature Ann Arbor bird house village. Abbot teachers use the Habitat to help educate students about science and the natural world around them.

Tasks undertaken by our volunteers included weeding, removing dead foliage and making sure all the various plant species in the Habitat had come through the winter.

Special credit goes to David Warner for the help with the pictures and for the project he is undertaking to identify the mystery plants in the Habitat. David even has plans to create educational signage for the more notable plants!

Thank you to all the volunteers (kids and grownups) who gave the Habitat some much needed care!
