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 6th, 2023 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Volunteers please arrive at 8:45 AM to sign in, meet and greet. 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
- Pulling invasive garlic mustard plants (easy to pull by hand)
- 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
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!
