Native trees were planted along the eastern edge of the stormwater basin at Dolph Park. This stormwater basin captures runoff from the surrounding neighborhood and slows it down before the water gets to the Third Sister Lake. By slowing down the stormwater, many pollutants are filtered out, which keeps the water clean in the lake. Third Sister Lake is one of the few natural lakes in Ann Arbor. The new trees are all native to Michigan and are American Sycamore, Redbud and Swamp White Oak. These new trees help capture and slow down stormwater as well.
Thank you to the volunteers from GIVE 365 and Arbor Brewing Company for helping plant the 12 trees. Funds for this project were raised by Arbor Brewing Company through their Tree Beard IPA.
