Tree Planting in the Escanaba River State Forest

09/18/2021 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM ET


Join MUCC's On The Ground program, the Caterpillar Foundation, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources as we plant and fence 80 native trees and shrubs to improve wildlife habitat throughout openings within the Escanaba River State Forest near Daggett Township. These native mast-producing trees will benefit a variety of wildlife including ring-necked pheasant, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, golden-winged warbler, and American woodcock. 

Volunteers will meet at the parking lot at the following Google Maps coordinates: 45°30'15.1"N 87°28'31.8"W.  Please test these coordinates before the event and contact MUCC Habitat Volunteer Coordinator Makhayla LaButte ( with any questions. More detailed location and project information will be provided to all registered volunteers before the event.


The event will begin at 9 AM and run until all the trees are planted. All registered volunteers will receive a free lunch and OTG volunteer appreciation gift. Shovels and all necessary equipment will be provided, although volunteers are encouraged to bring their own work gloves if possible. 


We would like to thank the Caterpillar Foundation for sponsoring this tree planting in Menominee County.
