DNR seeks volunteers to remove invasive shrubs at southeast Michigan parks, recreation areas
Volunteers will be in several counties during December
Officials are looking for volunteers to help remove invasive shrubs from parks and recreation areas in southeastern Michigan.
The Department of Natural Resources says cutting and piling the unwanted bushes will help restore the parks' unique natural areas.
The work bees will be held Dec. 1 at Island Lake Recreation Area in Livingston County; Dec. 2 at Brighton Recreation Area in Livingston County; Dec. 8 at Oakland County's Bald Mountain Recreation Area and Highland Recreation Area; and Dec. 9 at Pinckney Recreation Area in Washtenaw County.
Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for outdoor work such as long pants and close-toed shoes and bring gloves and drinking water.
Details about each workday can be found at the DNR website.
