Stewardship volunteers needed in southern Michigan state parks

State parks in southern Michigan will host a number of volunteer stewardship workdays in January.

Volunteers are needed to help locate and cut non-native, invasive shrubs that threaten to crowd out native plants and disrupt balance in high-quality ecosystems. Workdays are an enjoyable way to spend time outdoors while restoring Michigan’s ecosystems and learning about its inhabitants.

Workdays will take place:

Saturday, Jan. 5, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County)

Saturday, Jan. 19, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fort Custer Recreation Area (Kalamazoo County)

Sunday, Jan. 20, 1 to 4 p.m. at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County)

Saturday, Jan. 26, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Highland Recreation Area (Oakland County)

Sunday, Jan. 27, 1 to 4 p.m. at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County)

More information about volunteer stewardship workdays, including a calendar of opportunities, is available at michigan.gov/dnrvolunteers.
