Step up for nature.
Join a group of dedicated volunteers at Ives Road Fen Preserve in southeast Michigan. Throughout the spring and fall, you will enjoy seeing butterflies and various bird species. In the spring months, we pull garlic mustard in the floodplain forest next to the River Raisin and enjoy the woodland wildflowers and herptiles. In the fall, we cut honeysuckle in the upland area near the prairie and enjoy the fall colors and fruits. As a volunteer, you will get a chance to see parts of the preserve that most visitors never get to see!
