Join MUCC’s On the Ground program and the Eaton Conservation District as we plant approximately 200 native trees and shrubs within the Potterville State Game Area.

The Potterville State Game Area is a new 445-acre state game area that has a great mix of agricultural fields, grasslands, and wetlands. The Michigan DNR and other conservation partners are actively managing this area to provide quality wildlife habitat for a wide variety of species. In an effort to further enhance habitat within the state game area, Eaton Conservation District will be leading a number of projects such as native shrub plantings and fence removals.

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help plant approximately 200 native shrubs within the state game area. All shovels and planting equipment will be provided, although volunteers are encouraged to bring their own work gloves.

Volunteers will meet at the parking lot on E Vermontville Highway, just west of the city of Potterville (Google Maps coordinates: 42°37’33.7″N 84°46’45.9″W). The event will begin at 10AM and run until all the trees are planted. All registered volunteers will receive a free lunch and OTG volunteer carabiner mug or t-shirt.
