Stewardship Events

The Grosse Ile Nature and Land Conservancy is committed to uphold its mission of land protection by ensuring sound management of all land parcels and conservation easements for which we are responsible.  There are numerous opportunities to assist the Conservancy with various property projects. These include trail construction, trail maintenance, sign installation, cleanup, exotic species removal and other activities. Since these events are often weather dependent, we contact our stewardship volunteers directly. Please contact us if you are interested in helping and we will put you on the list.
