Native Tree Planting in Kalkaska

Saturday, October 24, 2020 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join Michigan United Conservation Club’s On the Ground program as they plant native trees in Kalkaska near Johnson Lake this fall. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help plant, mulch and fence 90 mature soft mast-producing trees to enhance habitat for wildlife. These fruit trees will benefit a variety of wildlife that include ruffed grouse, wild turkey, white-tailed deer and an abundance of other game and non-game species. Volunteers will meet at 1089 Wildwood Shores Drive in Kalkaska at 9 a.m., and after registration and introductions are completed, will travel as a group to the nearby project site. Granola bars and water will be available to all volunteers while in the field planting trees, and brats and hamburgers will be served at the end of the event. All volunteers will also receive a free OTG t-shirt. Although the official time slot for this event runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., volunteers are welcome to leave at any point during the day. Volunteers are asked to bring their own work gloves, if possible. MUCC will provide these materials if the volunteer is unable to bring their own. Also bring a face covering that can be worn when social distancing of six feet or more is not possible. Additionally, four-wheel drive pick-up trucks will be beneficial to access the planting site.
