During these uncertain times, how can we help?

As the world leader in volunteerism we feel a responsibility to unite our broader community, and to use this moment to learn from one another, to grow, and to become stronger.

The Nature Conservancy in Michigan

Sun Ok Treating the Stumps
We use sponge applicators to apply herbicide to the stumps to prevent regrowth. Other jobs you can choose from are cutting and dragging.

Work with other Nature Conservancy volunteers cutting and making brush piles of the invasive shrub honeysuckle that is taking over the upland forest next to the prairie. Tools and training will be provided. As the season progresses you will see a myriad of wildflowers, songbirds, and butterflies, with naturalists present to help with identification. This part of the preserve is not open to the public, so this is your only chance to see it. For even more fun bring your friends!

Bring your phone to Instagram the neat things you see.

P.S. Stick around for Lev’s Bakery chocolate chip cookies and cold Coke at the end of the day.

P.P.S. There will be an optional walk to see cricket frogs after the refreshments.
