Stream Team Volunteers, Sue and Rick Nyce

Stream Team: Stream Team members help monitor water quality in our streams and rivers by collecting and identifying aquatic macro-invertebrates. It’s a fun activity for families, educators, or individuals. Monitoring takes place in May and October. Additional dates may be added as educational events, where we welcome volunteers to teach alongside staff. Contact: kate.nietling@macd.org

Can you help our garden grow?

Trails and Gardens: Missaukee Conservation District maintains a trail system and native plant demonstration gardens at our Lake City headquarters. We are always in need of gardeners to help maintain these trails. We are also currently seeking grants to refurbish several garden spots and add educational components throughout the trail system. Contact: kelly.hansen@macd.org or kate.nietling@macd.org.
