It is the perfect time of the year to address any maintenance that is necessary for spring and summer. This year’s Annual Spring Work Bee is on Saturday May 7th, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Volunteers please arrive at 8:45 AM to sign in and complete a Health Screening form (for covid-19). Assignments are given out at the start of the day at 9:00 AM. After the work is done we will have a complimentary Thank You picnic lunch! The staff will provide a lite-lunch and refreshments for all volunteers participating this day!

What will I be doing at the Work Bee?
Assignments are given out at the start of the day at 9:00 AM. If you have an interest in something particular, let us know! Our goal is to utilize a volunteer’s individual strengths as much as possible. Here are some areas we plan to tackle:
- Clear out invasive plants along the trails
- Place wood chips on the Natural Playscape and other areas of need
- Weeding around the buildings and flower gardens
- Wash windows, bird feeders, and outdoor signage
- Wash Maple Sugaring equipment
- Clean and organize the McLaughlin pole barn
We welcome you to bring your own personal equipment such as rakes, garden shears, loppers, and other tools that would help assist the process.
Remember to; dress for the weather, bring your work gloves and a bottle of water! Everyone will be working outdoors. Please follow the current covid-19 guidelines to social distance, wearing a face mask when indoors, wash hands, etc. Our #1 Priority is Safety and Health.
Feel free to contact the office at 517-782-3453 ext. 0 should you have questions or concerns. Thank you kindly!
