About on the ground

On the Ground (OTG) is MUCC’s award-winning volunteer wildlife habitat improvement program. We invite both consumptive and non-consumptive users of Michigan’s public lands to band together to improve fish and wildlife habitat while increasing public access to lands throughout the state.

OTG is funded in part by a Memorandum of Agreement with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Wildlife Division. DNR wildlife biologists and technicians have been instrumental in developing and coordinating the hundreds of projects that OTG has helped host.
