Program check-in will be at the picnic table in front of the Nature Center. Temperature checks and screening questions will be required. If the weather cooperates, activities take place entirely outdoors; six-foot distancing will be enforced, and masks are encouraged.

In case of inclement weather, the program will move indoors, where masks and six-foot distancing will be required. Nature Center staff will be wearing masks at all times and enforcing physical distancing guidelines.

Equipment will be provided, but participants should provide their own gloves and water bottles. Groups of 10 or more should call the Nature Center, 248-477-1135, before Volunteer Day. Registration is encouraged at recreg.fhgov.com or in-person at the Costick Center, 28600 W. 11 Mile Rd.
