Examples of Volunteer Activities

Restoring protected property

We are looking for volunteers to aid in managing invasive plants and planting native flora such as flowers, grasses, bushes, and trees. You can sign alone or with your friends, family, or organization to participate in this outdoor activity. During spring, we remove garlic mustard to prevent it from taking over our forests and open spaces.  Throughout the year we distribute seedballs, plant native plugs, bushes, and trees, maintain our demonstration gardens, and eliminate the next batch of invasive plants. No special skills are required.

We run on Volunteer Power

"Make a difference by joining us today! Whether you're an individual or an organization, your volunteer work can help power our cause. With a range of ongoing projects and opportunities, every contribution counts towards creating positive change. Let's work together to make a meaningful impact

Repair & maintenance of public spaces

We need people handy with tools to maintain trails, set signage posts or repair the occasional boardwalk. We will meet you on site with directions and materials. 

Office work/home work

BHHC has tasks you can do at home or at our office. If you enjoy organizing or typing/copying or using your artistic skills, we have a project for you. All tasks contribute to our mission of preserving land and water in Northwest Oakland County.

Seed collection and distribution

Most seed collection is done in late summer and into fall, but a few patient people can help gather the seeds of early flowering plants at the beginning of summer. In 2020, BHHC joined Pollinator Partnership in training folks in native seed collection methods. Join us and become part of a national effort to increase habitat for pollinators. Birds, bees, butterflies and even mammals will thank you.

Property Inspector

If you love being out in nature, you might want to become a property inspector. We will train you on what to look for and how to record it. One of our experienced inspectors will go with you on your first inspection. Call the office to find out when the next training session takes place 248-795-2808. Property inspection is a family-friendly event.
