Eco-Stewardship Work Days
Eco-Stewardship Work Days focuses on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean-up and removal of invasive species.
Education is a key aspect with instruction not only on removal but also on identification of several native Michigan plant species and general ecology.
Volunteers learn to identify and manage plants that may be growing in their communities and how those plants and their volunteer efforts impact their surrounding environment.
