Field Trip - North Hydro Park

Trip Leader: Bill Brodovich

Ypsilanti Township’s North Hydro Park along the Huron River offers a surprising diversity of plant life.  The steep wooded bluffs are very scenic and have some uncommon plants such as Allium cernuum, Taenidia integerrima, Gymnocladus dioicus, Muhlenbergia tenuiflora (very uncommon), Piptatherum racemosum (the old Oryzopsis racemosa), and native redbuds.
