    Michigan Trails Week ends on National Public Lands Day, the nation's largest single day volunteer event for public lands. Michigan DNR is celebrating this important day by offering free vehicle entry to Michigan state parks, no Recreation Passport required. You can also help preserve Michigan's public lands by volunteering your time, making a financial contribution to support your favorite trail or simply telling others about Michigan's woods and waters! For information about volunteer opportunities with Michigan state parks, trails and other public lands, contact Miguel Rodriguez at (517) 284-6127 or via email at RodriguezM2@michigan.gov.

    Michigan Trails Week is a great way for outdoor outfitters, recreation groups, trail associations, local units of government and other organizations to increase awareness, build membership, recruit volunteers and engage with the community. Events can include trail runs, wellness resources fairs, guided hikes, paddles, equestrian rides, bike rides and much more! To have your event added to the calendar, simply email the details to mitrailweek@gmail.com. Service events taking place on Saturday, Sept. 27 can be added to the National Public Lands Day event listing at http://www.publiclandsday.org/register-site.
