Volunteering for the Department of Natural Resources is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the State Parks, get exercise, and breathe some fresh air while still having fun and enjoying the magnificent scenery that Michigan is known for.
Volunteers are needed from Berrien County north to Muskegon County. The State calls this a volunteer stewardship program throughout the month of May. Come prepared with appropriate clothing for outdoor work, layered, if possible, for a good days' work. Gloves and drinking water are a must.
Youth groups, scouts, service clubs and classes are needed to locate and remove the invasive weed, known as Garlic Mustard. This plant is a threat to wildflowers like trillium and bloodroot along with others.
