Michigan state park volunteer opportunities

Several state parks in southern Michigan will host volunteer stewardship workdays in August. 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, Aug. 1, 9 a.m. to noon at Highland Recreation Area (Oakland County)
Sunday, Aug. 2, 9 a.m. to noon at Waterloo Recreation Area (Washtenaw County)
Saturday, Aug. 8, 9 a.m. to noon at Bald Mountain Recreation Area (Oakland County)
