More Volunteer Stewardship Workdays Scheduled in Southeast Michigan

A series of volunteer steward workdays will be held throughout February in southeast Michigan state parks and recreation areas.

Volunteers are needed to remove invasive species and to restore native ecosystems protected in these locations. All volunteers are required to complete a registration form. Park officials remind volunteers to remember to bring appropriate clothing for outdoor work, including long pants, boots, gloves, eye protection and drinking water. Appropriate footwear also is required as some sites may be wet throughout the winter.

For information about the specific tasks at each location and to obtain directions, go to www.michigan.gov/dnrvolunteers and click on "Be a Part of a Core Volunteer Steward Team."

Times, dates and locations of the workdays are as follows:

* Island Lake Recreation Area: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 4
* Algonac State Park: 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 5
* Bald Mountain Recreation Area: 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Feb. 11
* Waterloo Recreation Area: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 18
* Pinckney Recreation Area: 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 19
* Brighton Recreation Area: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
