What we do

The Friends of Greenview and Pioneer Nature Area promotes the native landscape restoration of this unique resource, encourages use of the property for environmental and outdoor education activities by the Ann Arbor Public Schools, and recognizes the importance of the property as a nature area for area residents.

The Friends of Greenview and Pioneer Nature Area has received 501(c)3 status.  The organization has been in existence for over twenty years and has been actively involved in the improvement of the nature area.

The Friends have planted trees, established an edible garden, conducted meadow restorations, cleared invasive buckthorn and maintained trails. The group has an elected Board of Directors and conducts an annual meeting as well as quarterly Board meetings.

With the assistance of staff from the City of Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation, the Friends organizes work days.  We encourage area residents and neighbors to attend these work days and to enjoy this important nature area.
