Volunteer At the Huron River Watershed Council

. May 2, 2012.

Do you enjoy working outdoors, helping the environment and meeting lots of new people? Volunteers are needed to assess grasslands, forests, aquatic habitats and wetlands for the spring, summer and fall. A minimum commitment to three assessments throughout the season (each lasts about 4 hours) is required. Training will be provided on May 12 at Independence Lake County Park in Whitmore Lake. Participants will learn valuable skills to aid them in identifying important natural areas for protection. The program has allowed for more than 200 properties in Ann Arbor and surrounding areas to be surveyed in the interest of promoting and preserving the Huron River. Field Assessment Training, 10am to 3pm. Independence Lake County Park, Whitmore Lake. 734-769-5123. www.hrwc.org
