Volunteer Work Days at Ives Road Fen Preserve

Michigan

Step up for nature.

Join a group of dedicated volunteers at Ives Road Fen Preserve in southeast Michigan. In the spring, 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'll experience parts of the preserve that most visitors never get to see!

To participate, contact Chuck Pearson at ivesroadfen@gmail.com or call 615-500-8229. Groups are limited to 10 and under and must adhere to TNC's COVID-19 field work guidelines
