National Public Lands Day
Michigan Trails Week ends on National Public Lands Day, the nation's largest single day volunteer event for public lands. You can 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.

Events can include trail runs, wellness resources fairs, guided hikes, paddles, equestrian rides, bike rides and much more!
