Department of Natural Resources
Michigan has an abundance of forest land that is enjoyed by hikers, bird watchers and hunters. Every year, tons of trash is illegally dumped in Michigan's forests.
The Adopt-a-Forest program works to enhance the enjoyment of public forest lands by eliminating illegal dumping and to increase the awareness of recycling opportunities for waste materials found.
The Adopt-a-Forest program is sponsored jointly by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, the U.S. Forest Service, the Michigan Society of American Foresters, and many private organizations.
