Several state parks in southern Michigan will host volunteer stewardship workdays in July. Volunteers are needed to help with removing invasive plants that threaten high-quality ecosystems in the parks.
Please note that registration 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:
Saturday, July 11, 9 a.m. to noon at Bald Mountain Recreation Area (Oakland County)
Sunday, July 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Waterloo Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
Saturday, July 18, 9 a.m. to noon at Belle Isle Park (Wayne County)
Sunday, July 19, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Brighton Recreation Area (Livingston County)
Saturday, July 25, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Island Lake Recreation Area (Livingston County)
Sunday, July 26, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pinckney Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
