Field Trips and Events

Looking for opportunities 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.

Back by popular demand, join us at the Cranbrook Institute of Science for our Science Talks Lecture Series! Beginning in February and ending in May, join us each month as Conservancy scientists discuss reconnecting waterways, toxic algal blooms, wild places, and freshwater dunes. Visit for additional information, including dates and registration. See you there!
