Brush Pile Building in Kalkaska County: Part of Mark Kenyon’s Working for Wildlife Tour

Apr 22, 2023 9:30AM—2:00PM


Sunset Trail Road SE - Kalkaska County


MUCC’s On the Ground program is excited to be a part of Mark Kenyon’s 2023 Working for Wildlife Tour! Join OTG in partnership with Land Ethics LLC on Saturday, April 22 from 9:30 AM to 2 PM (check-in starts at 9 AM) as we work to maintain wildlife openings and build brush piles on public hunting land in the Traverse City Forest Management Unit in Kalkaska County.

Volunteers will meet at the Kalkaska ORV Trail Parking Lot, north off M-72 in Kalkaska. From there, we will carpool to the worksite. This area is part of the Traverse City Forest Management Unit and is land that is open to the public for hunting and recreation.

Volunteers will assist with building brush piles for game habitat, maintaining and improving wildlife openings, and softening forest/opening edge within a forested landscape to improve habitat for wildlife, particularly game species.

MUCC will be hosting a social event taking place immediately following the habitat project. Those  interested are welcome to join us for appetizers and good conversation with fellow habitat enthusiasts at Bear Lake Inn on M-72.

To attend this event, please register here or at the link above. Please note that registration will close on Thursday, April 20 at 4pm. If you would like to register after that time, please email to sign-up.
