Working within a fen, volunteers at Brighton Recreation Area cut invasive plant glossy buckthorn.Volunteers lend essential support to state parks' effort to eliminate invasive plant species A crew of volunteers at Brighton Recreation Area recently cut down invasive glossy buckthorn and treated the stumps with an herbicide that will kill the plant, allowing the native species to prosper. Brighton Recreation Area is one of many state parks where volunteers help maintain and preserve the natural habitat through stewardship days. For more information, check out the DNR's Calendar of Volunteer Stewardship Workdays.
Angler bent over, checking a tip-up on frozen lake with fishing shanty in background.Tip-ups offer anglers more options on the ice Tip-ups are devices designed to fish set lines through the ice. They are equipped with spring-loaded flags that "tip up" when the bait is taken by a fish. Tip-ups are more closely associated with pike fishing than any other species here in Michigan, but they can be used to pursue most any species. In recent years, more walleye fishermen have been experimenting with tip-ups.
Yurt at Waterloo Recreation Area with snow on the ground, tree, campers outside by picnic tableAt many Michigan state parks and recreation areas, winter campers have unique, cozy alternatives to tents If you want to get away from it all in the winter, the DNR has a plethora of options that don't involve sleeping out in the elements. State parks and recreation areas across Michigan offer lodges, cabins, mini-cabins or yurts that'll give you a warm place to spend the night when there aren't a lot of other campers around. There also is a wide variety of recreational opportunities available all winter long.
