We are often asked what happens here at Stinchfield. Well we compiled a little list to give you an idea of who uses the woods and for what purpose.
- Friends of Stinchfield Group organizes an annual litter clean-up of the surrounding roads in April (all welcome to help out)
- Boy Scouts have orienteering exercises multiple times per year
- Soil Ecology, Woody Plants, and Biology of Fungi courses from the University of Michigan take annual field trips in the fall
- A local church meets on Easter Sunday
- Cross country runners from a local highschool meet at the observatory for group runs
- Mushroom Hunters Club has an annual outing in the fall
- Breeding Birds Survey is conducted by volunteers annually in early June
- University Lowbrow Astronomers hold multiple public events each year where you can view the stars through telescopes
In addition to these annual events, there are multiple research projects located in the woods and students and researchers often use the woods for various educational opportunities.
