ABOUT OUR WOODLANDS & WATERS PROGRAM
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. In 2017, our Woodlands & Waters program will offer a series of fun, active, educational outdoor experiences to connect people of all ages to Northeast Michigan’s amazing natural resources and their conservation.
To ensure that event planners can provide adequate supplies for all participants, RSVPs are kindly requested by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (989) 448-2293 ext. 21
