Help us build and install boardwalks in this environmentally sensitive preserve to make this beautiful place more accessible and minimize pedestrian impact. Volunteers need strong backs, but do not need building experience to participate. If you like to use tools and/or carry heavy things, this is the workday for you! Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle. Register with Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734.302.5263
We have cancelled this workday due to a storm headed our way. Please join us next weekend to work on this project!
Help us put the finishing touches on the boardwalks started the previous week. Many hands make light work! If we finish early there will be time to scout out and control the few invasive shrubs in this otherwise invasive-free preserve! Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle.

On this day, the store will donate five percent of that day’s sales to Legacy Land Conservancy, a not-for-profit that serves southeastern Michigan. The CSD program is part of Whole Foods Market’s commitment to good community citizenship. Each year, a minimum of five percent of the Company’s total profits are donated to a wide variety of community and nonprofit organizations.

What better way to see beautiful places than to volunteer to photograph them? The Photo-Monitoring Squad volunteers are a group of dedicated and hardy individuals interested in bush-whacking, GPS use and digital imagery to assist Legacy in upholding the terms of their conservation easements. Part I will be an indoor orientation session. Part II is an outdoor field training. Join the squad by attending both of these trainings (on April 6th and April 13th). Register with Dana at email@example.com or 734.302.5263.
Volunteers will be going through a ‘practice run’ monitoring as a group at an easement property. Learn what things to look for in the field and the how to’s of monitoring forms and photo management. Please bring your camera and GPS unit (if you have one). Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear if the ground is wet. NOTE: This training is part 2 of the Photo-Monitoring Training. RSVP to Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
