Volunteer for Wildlife this Spring

Two OTG volunteers add the finishing touches to a small game brush pile on public land in Clare County in March of 2020.

OTG is in need of volunteers for two small game habitat projects this March. Join the OTG program on Saturday, March 13 in Clare County and Saturday, March 27 in Kalkaska as we improve habitat for small game and other wildlife by building brush piles. Also known as “rabbitat,” the brush piles built during these events will enhance habitat for a variety of species such as rabbit/hare, ruffed grouse, woodcock and squirrels. As with all OTG events, registered volunteers receive free lunch and an OTG t-shirt.

On April 24, OTG is partnering with the Ruffed Grouse Society for a tree planting at Minden City State Game Area. Volunteers are needed to help plant and tube 200-300 oak trees.  These hard mast-producing trees will benefit ruffed grouse, wild turkey, white-tailed deer and several other wildlife species.
