With more than 3,300 volunteers and more than 165 wildlife habitat improvement projects completed, the On the Ground (OTG) program has impacted wildlife habitat on public land throughout Michigan. As we look back and review the previous habitat improvement field seasons, we are compiling data and reports to build a comprehensive picture of the OTG program’s impact and success.
One component we would like to include in the report is survey results from OTG volunteers that explain why they chose to volunteer with the OTG program and other information about their conservation interests. This data can help the OTG program better understand the needs of volunteers while simultaneously providing information about how to grow the program and have a greater impact on wildlife habitat across the state.
We appreciate all of the conservationists that have joined us in the field improving habitat for Michigan wildlife. With your participation in this survey, we hope to capture the unique volunteer experience the OTG program provides for participants and how we can grow as a wildlife habitat volunteer program.
