Field Trips and Events

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.

Still too cold to head outside? Consider attending one of six lectures given by Nature Conservancy experts at the Cranbrook Institute of Science. From January through April 2014, Cranbrook Institute of Science will host a lecture series titled "Science Talks" featuring discussions on the restoration of native fish, how technology is advancing conservation, striking a balance between farming and freshwater, and techniques for protecting rare species and habitats.
