Help us remove a landscape plant gone bad! Japanese barberry is commonly planted as a landscape ornamental but has escaped and is spreading in our forests and dunes! No experience necessary, we will go over plant ID before using herbicide to remove it from the park.

Please register by emailing Emily Leslie. For more information, visit the Volunteer Stewardship webpage.

Please note:

A Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry into Michigan state parks.

Dates occasionally change and events may be canceled due to inclement weather. If not already registered, you may want to call to confirm dates/times prior to arrival.
