Stewardship Volunteers

Meet at the Whitford Lake parking area and we’ll take a short walk to our plant propagation area. GPS coordinates: 42°18'40.7"N 85°21'37.9"W.

Join in the effort to help restore native prairie on National Public Lands Day! Volunteers will help collect native wildflower and grass seeds that will be replanted throughout the park as part of our ongoing restoration efforts. This is a great activity for the family to enjoy the outdoors. No experience is necessary and instruction on plant identification will be provided. Please dress to be in an open prairie area and be sure to bring along some water. 

Volunteers are asked to register by using the volunteer registration form or via email freih@michigan.gov. Additional information and the Calendar of Volunteer Stewardship Workdays is available via the DNR website www.michigan.gov/dnrvolunteers.
