Hankerd dry sand prairie and oak barrens is a neat place that needs ongoing removal of invasive plants to keep it in good condition! We may be pulling spotted knapweed, so please wear long pants and long sleeves as some individuals are sensitive to this plant. We may also cut or foliar herbicide small autumn olive shrubs. So, come for a smorgasbord of invasive plant control to maintain this special ecosystem and the neat native plants that grow here! Meet at the Halfmoon Lake parking lot to help out. From North Territorial Road, take Hankerd Road north until you see the entrance on the left. GPS coordinates: 42.416555, -83.998425
