GRYP is excited to partner with the Land Conservancy of West Michigan!
The Land Conservancy’s 16 nature preserves contain an incredible diversity of natural
features including prairies, forests, and wetlands that are great places to explore.
However, invasive species and altered natural processes threaten to degrade the
ecological quality of many of our preserves. Active management is often needed to
ensure the long-term sustainability of these wonderful natural areas, and we need your
help. Fortunately, through our Second Saturdays event series, there are now plenty of
opportunities to get involved.
From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month, the Land
Conservancy will host a volunteer event that focuses on ecological restoration activities
including invasive species removal, seed collecting, and native plant installation.
Volunteers may also be involved with trail maintenance, general clean-up, or other tasks
that help visitors better enjoy our magnificent natural areas.
Tools, work gloves, water, and snacks will be provided.
