There’s still a few opportunities left this October to volunteer for stewardship workdays at state parks in southeast Michigan.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources seeks volunteers who are needed to cut invasive, non-native shrubs or collect seeds from native prairie plants to restore high-quality natural areas. Finding non-native invasive shrubs is easier this time of year since they generally stay green longer than their native counterparts. These activities are a great way to enjoy time outdoors in the beautiful autumn weather while restoring unique prairies and wetlands.
