    OTG 2017 Season Comes to an End at the Grayling State Forest

    This Saturday, volunteers with MUCC’s On the Ground (OTG) program will be partnering with the Department of Natural Resources, the National Wild Turkey Federation, and Camp Grayling for a wildlife habitat improvement project under their Wildlife Habitat Grant. A total of 150 trees will be planted to improve habitat for the areas turkey, whitetail deer, black bear, other small game and non-game species as well. Camp Grayling staff will be auguring the holes for 50 of the larger trees prior to the project. Volunteers will then be planting the trees and filling in the holes with fertilizer and topsoil. This project will complete the OTG season as the 25th event this year. More wildlife habitat improvement events will be scheduled starting in December for the next season-keep up to date at www.mucc.org/ontheground!

    OTG Improves Wildlife Habitat in the Northern Lower and Upper Peninsula

    Last weekend was a busy one for MUCC’s On the Ground program and volunteers. On Friday, a group of 12 volunteers removed small trees and shrubs from a 20-acre area at Inspiration Point in the Pigeon River Country State Forest to restore the area to a wildlife opening. Then, on Saturday, a group of 23 volunteers planted 300 trees in the Melstrand Grouse Enhanced Management Site (GEMS). Both of these events were made possible by new and continuing partnerships with local chapters of national and statewide organizations such as Huron Pines AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps NCCC, the DNR, Ruffed Grouse Society, Alger County UP Whitetails, and Michigan Sharp Tail Association. Thank you to the many volunteers that dedicated their day to improve wildlife habitat on Michigan’s public lands!
