Save to Favorites


  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

The Hiawatha National Forest is seeking wilderness monitoring assistance across the East and West Zones of the Forest. Wilderness Stewardship Performance activities at Big Island Lake (near Steuben), Delirium (near Rudyard), Horseshoe Bay (near St Ignace), Mackinac (near St Ignace), and Rock River Canyon (near Eben Junction) Wildernesses will be the top priority. The primary duty involves data collection to include user-developed trails inventory, system trail monitoring, recreation site inventory and monitoring, and solitude monitoring. There may also be opportunities for trail maintenance, dispersed site maintenance, public education/outreach, data cleaning/upload, and other related tasks. Training will be cheerfully provided. Schedule for volunteering is very flexible and can be based off of volunteer availability. If available, camping sites may be provided to volunteer(s).

Established in 1987, the Hiawatha’s congressionally designated Wilderness areas protect over 38,000 acres of Upper Peninsula woods and waters "for the use and enjoyment of the American people in such manner as will leave them unimpaired for future use and enjoyment as wilderness." Visitor encounters tend to be relatively low, and insect encounters can be relatively high. Highlights include deep forest, abundant wildlife, miles of Great Lakes shoreline, placid inland lakes, and beautiful but nearly impenetrable fens, bogs, and swamps.
