Each year, the Ann Arbor District Library partners with Natural Area Preservation to lead a series of nature walks around parks and natural areas in Ann Arbor on the last Thursday of every month. Black Pond Woods is a 34-acre woodland named for a small, vernal pond with a basin carved by receding glaciers. Despite its small size, Black Pond Woods has three distinct habitat types within its boundaries that are home to a variety of wildlife. The walk will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m., July 26.
The walks from April through September are a fun way to learn about native plants and animals. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water and bug spray if desired. For this walk, meet on Tibbits Court, off Pontiac Trail.
