MCD on Facebook:

Logging in Michigan started in the mid-1800's. The most desired tree species was White Pine (Pinus strobus), for its ease to work with and beauty. Loggers back in the late 1800's found 200-year-old pines that were 200 feet tall and five feet in diameter.
Today White pine is our state tree! You can plant this impressive tree in your backyard this spring! Order some from our annual seedling sale.

K-12 Education

Outdoor Investigations Programs
The Muskegon Conservation District has partnered with the Muskegon Environmental Research and Education Society (MERES) and the Alcoa Foundation to offer hands-on, inquiry-based outdoor experiences for students of all ages. Students can take their science lessons outdoors to the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve to investigate pond, riverbank, marsh, and forest habitats. As students investigate the ecology of the preserve, they also learn how their own actions can impact their local environment. Groups can also participate in stewardship projects at the preserve during their field trips.

Classroom Presentations
We offer classroom presentations for K-12 students on topics including stormwater management, groundwater, and water quality. These interactive programs can be adapted for any age group, and additional natural resources topics are available upon request.

Please call 231-828-5097 for more info.
