Plant some trees for wildlife this weekend with On the Ground

Sandwiched in between Good Friday and Easter this weekend is Saturday, and if you're looking for something to do in southwest Michigan, what better way to spend time with your family than planting trees for wildlife at Crane Pond State Game Area? This is a great project for youth to learn how to plant spruce trees and how they provide thermal cover for deer and grouse.
Volunteers of all ages from the Christian Service Brigade at Sharonville SGA Volunteer wildlife projects can be fun and informative for people of all ages
