Several state parks in southern Michigan will host volunteer stewardship workdays in May. Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive plants that threaten high-quality ecosystems in the parks.
Please note that preregistration is required for all volunteer workdays, and participation may be limited due to social distancing requirements.
Although these are outdoor programs and proper social distancing of at least 6 feet is required, participants still are encouraged to wear face coverings as an added precaution.
Workdays will take place:
Sunday, May 9, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Waterloo Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
Friday, May 21, 1 to 4 p.m. at Waterloo Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
Saturday, May 22, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Island Lake Recreation Area (Livingston County)
Sunday, May 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pinckney Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
More details about each workday can be found on the DNR volunteer events calendar.
