Stream Monitoring

Volunteers help monitor water quality in our streams  and rivers by collecting

and identifying aquatic macro-invertebrates. It’s a fun activity for families, educators

or individuals.

Monitoring generally takes place in the spring and fall. Additional dates may be added

as educational events, where we welcome volunteers to teach alongside staff.  

Interested in learning more? Details of these events are posted on our Stream

Monitoring page. 


Trails and Gardens

Missaukee Conservation District maintains a trail system and native plant

demonstration gardens at our Lake City headquarters. We are always in need of

gardeners to help maintain these features. We are also currently seeking grants

to refurbish several garden areas and add educational components throughout

the trail system.

Contact sherry.blaszak@macd.org for more information.

Invasive Species- Learn about invasive species and report them using the MISIN  

smart phone app. We have staff available to teach your business, lake  association or 

organization about the threat invasive species pose and how to eradicate them best.
