Have you made a resolution for the new year to get outside and enjoy all of the natural wonder Michigan has to offer? A great way to do that is to attend a Nature Conservancy event or preserve field trip! Or, visit our volunteer page to learn more about volunteering in Michigan to find additional ways you can get outdoors and help in our mission to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends.
Too cold to head outside? Consider attending one of six lectures given by Nature Conservancy experts at the Cranbrook Institute of Science. From October 2012 through April 2013, Cranbrook Institute of Science will host a lecture series titled "What's So Great About the Great Lakes?" featuring discussions on rising temperatures, sustainable forestry, and the challenges facing species like migratory birds.
