    The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is seeking volunteers to cut invasive shrubbery in several state parks in southern Michigan.

    Volunteers will cut down shrubs, such as glossy buckthorn, autumn olive, multi-flora rose and other non-native species.

    Volunteering days will take place:

    • Saturday, Dec. 1 at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
    • Saturday, Dec. 1 at Highland Recreation Area (Oakland County), 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
    • Saturday, Dec. 8 at Warren Dunes State Park (Berrien County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
    • Saturday, Dec. 15 at Fort Custer Recreation Area (Kalamazoo County), 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

    The DNR said the volunteer program is a great way to get outdoors while learning more about the ecosystem.

    To volunteer you must complete and submit a stewardship volunteer registration form.
