Michigan state park stewardship volunteers needed throughout May

The DNR will host a number of volunteer stewardship workdays in May at state parks in southeast and southwest Michigan.

Volunteers are needed to remove garlic mustard, an invasive plant that threatens native habitats. Workdays are an enjoyable way to spend time outdoors while restoring Michigan’s ecosystems and learning about its inhabitants.

Workday details (including meeting locations, the stewardship volunteer registration form and links to individual park maps and directions) are available on the DNR website at Michigan.gov/DNRVolunteers. Volunteers are asked to register either by using the form or by emailing freih@michigan.gov.
