European Frog-bit Volunteer Workday

June 14: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Duck Park, Alpena, MI
9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join Huron Pines and the Alpena Wildlife Sanctuary in removing invasive European frog-bit from the waters around Island Park in Alpena. European frog-bit is a free-floating invasive aquatic plant that forms dense mats on the water’s surface. This event is part of an ongoing effort to manage the invasive species and control its spread within the Alpena Wildlife Sanctuary and Duck Park to preserve recreation access and wildlife habitat.

The workday will begin at 9am and run until 1pm. There will be various tasks for volunteers like, hand pulling frog-bit along the shoreline or helping transport frog-bit for disposal. Work gloves, waders, tall rubber boots or any sort of protective water gear is recommended. Volunteers will be provided rakes and buckets.


This project has been funded wholly or in part by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) under Agreement EFB20-01 to Huron Pines and by the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (

We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals to engage fully. It is a priority for Huron Pines to ensure that our communications and programming are available and accessible to everyone. Please contact if you have any questions about accessibility or believe barriers remain.

We recognize that accessibility is not always possible in every area of our work. Our efforts are ongoing. Through a commitment to continued learning and understanding, we will strengthen our awareness of the barriers and inequities that exist at the individual and community levels, in order to advance more equitable opportunities to experience the outdoors in our region.
