Stream Monitoring

Volunteers help monitor water quality in our streams and rivers by collecting and identifying aquatic macroinvertebrates. It’s a fun activity for families, educators, or individuals.

Monitoring generally takes place in the spring and fall. Training is provided for volunteers to increase their knowledge and play leadership roles in this event.

Trails and Gardens

Missaukee Conservation District maintains a 1.5 mile trail system

and native plant demonstration garden at the office.

Volunteer are often needed to help maintain the gardens and trails. Training and tools are available to help. 

Invasive Species

We have staff available to teach your business, lake association or organization about the threat invasive species pose and how to eradicate them best.

You can help Missaukee County by reporting invasive species via email or on MISIN. Workdays to remove invasive species on MCD land or partners. Training and tools provided if needed. 

School Presentations/Workshops

Our staff conducts a variety of presentations with the help of our volunteers. We present workshops and classes to K-12 and adult audiences.
