Join MUCC’s OTG program in partnership with Pierce Cedar Creek Institute in removing invasive woody vegetation that is encroaching on wetland habitat that is critical to the eastern massasauga rattlesnake during breeding season. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 9am-12pm. Lunch will be provided around 11:30am. The project may continue after lunch depending on the amount of work available.

Project Site Location: Volunteers will meet at the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute (PCCI) “wet lab” building which is South off of W Cloverdale Road in Hastings, MI 49058, about ¾ mile east of the main entrance to PCCI. There is a parking lot at the meeting location. Please note that the meeting location is NOT the main PCCI building. Restrooms will be available at the project site.

Volunteers are required to wear closed-toed shoes and are encouraged to wear long pants and long sleeves. Attendees are also encouraged to bring reusable water bottles, although bottled water and snacks will be provided throughout the day. These projects will take place rain or shine, unless there is severe weather so please dress accordingly.

Please contact MUCC Habitat Volunteer Coordinator Kristina Kennedy at kkennedy@mucc.org with any questions regarding this event or the OTG program.
