The clear upland forests and low-lying wetlands of Fickardt Farm comprises one of AOA’s foremost Big Darby Creek conservation sites. With over 4,300 linear feet of riparian corridor, 180 acres of native prairie and 100 acres of upland and bottomland forests protected, this site requires ongoing stewardship and care. Join us for a day of hand-pulling small garlic mustard and honeysuckle, two invasive plant species that threaten to overtake Gunning’s rich forest understory.
