No experience is necessary, and training and equipment are provided. These activities are a great way to enjoy time outdoors in the late summer while restoring high-quality, unique ecosystems and learning more about them.
Workday dates, locations (counties) and times include:
- Saturday, Sept. 24: Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien), 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Sunday, Sept. 25: Yankee Springs Recreation Area (Barry), 1 to 4 p.m.
