Volunteer Opportunities:

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 general takes place in the spring and fall. Additional dates may be added as educational events, where we welcome volunteers to teach alongside staff.

Seedling Sale (March/April each year) Help prepare for our annual seedling sale. Volunteers are needed in the office and in the nursery. Once plants arrive, teams repackage seedlings for customer orders. Educators are also needed to help answer questions about planting and taking care of selections.

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.

Recycling Center As the Missaukee County Recycling Center continues to have more customers, we would welcome people to be volunteers – unloading vehicles, sorting, cleaning up the site, maybe mowing the lawn. Give us a call! We’d love to have you!

We are always looking for volunteers to help out on a variety of projects.
