BECOME A CFAS VOLUNTEER! Just pick an event and email the designated contact listed at the end of each event description. We do planting and maintenance events on public lands in coordination with the DNR and on private property along the Au Sable and Manistee rivers, especially for river property owners that may be willing to make the purchase but can’t physically manage the task. It’s a fun way to make a difference!
