“The workshop is a valuable tool as our participants have come back with a solid understanding of what being a non-profit board member is all about, which has made our organization much more effective at fulfilling its mission.”– Alex Cerveniak, President, Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited

The Nonprofit Leaders Series is presented by Huron Pines with support from Otsego County Community Foundation and Northeast Michigan Community Foundation.

NPLS Board Basics

Each year hundreds of people give their time and energy to volunteer with Huron Pines and participate in hands-on, feet-wet conservation projects all over Northeast Michigan. These projects have stabilized eroding streambanks, replanted young jack pine forest, pushed back noxious invasive plants, improved wildlife habitat and expanded access to recreation in many ways and locations across our beautiful state. These efforts have made important impacts directly on the ground for Great Lakes natural resources, and indirectly by encouraging people to care about protecting wild areas.

Our events are tied to our mission to conserve the forests, lakes and streams of Northeast Michigan.
Our events provide a safe, positive, friendly and helpful learning environment.
Our events engage people with diverse backgrounds and interests, and empower new conservation leaders.
Our events address a real need and have measurable benefits to Michigan’s natural resources.
Our events are inclusive and offer several tasks for participants of different ability levels.
Our events educate community members about ecological issues and methods to solve or prevent.
Our events are connected with efforts of other conservation organizations across the state.
