Friends of Dundee Natural Areas donates $4,000 brush mower to Dundee Township

Friends of Dundee Natural Areas, a nonprofit conservation charity, has donated a new $4,000 brush mowing machine to the Open Space Department of Dundee Township.

The mower will be used to efficiently clear large areas of invasive brush during environmental restoration of the 1,000 acres of natural areas owned by the township.

Friends of Dundee Natural Areas’ Carol Weinhammer presented the mower to Dundee Township officials and staff, including Dundee Township Supervisor Arin Thrower; Katie Meyer, the township’s director of programs and administration; and Open Space restoration technicians Dan Kennedy and Kirby Dowiat.

The mission of the Friends of Dundee Natural Areas is to help public and private landowners of natural areas within the greater Dundee Township area to overcome the challenges of limited resources in preservation, ecological restoration and protection of these open spaces.

To support this mission, consider a tax-deductible donation. Your donation will benefit only natural areas in or contiguous to Dundee Township. Learn more at or follow the group on Facebook.
