Celebrate Michigan Wildlife Conservation Month with OTG

What better way to celebrate Michigan Wildlife Conservation Month than by volunteering with MUCC’s On The Ground program to complete projects that directly benefit wildlife?

July offers an abundance of opportunities to volunteer for the benefit of fisheries and wildlife habitat across the Lower Peninsula. Events for this month include river clean-ups and brush-pile building for rabbit and ruffed grouse habitat. All volunteers receive free lunch and an OTG t-shirt!
