Join the Land Conservancy of West Michigan to remove invasive glossy buckthorn and other invasive shrubs as part of the ongoing restoration of this rare ecosystem type.


The Land Conservancy’s 18 nature preserves contain an incredible diversity of natural features including prairies, forests, and wetlands that are great places to explore. However, invasive species and altered natural processes threaten to degrade the ecological quality of many of our preserves. Active management is often needed to ensure the long-term sustainability of these wonderful natural areas, and we need your help.

Fortunately, through our Second Saturdays event series, there are now plenty of opportunities to get involved.

From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month, the Land Conservancy will host a volunteer event that focuses on ecological restoration activities including invasive species removal, seed collecting, and native plant installation. Volunteers may also be involved with trail maintenance, general clean-up, or other tasks that help visitors better enjoy our magnificent natural areas.
