Project Description: Are you interested in volunteer stewardship but unable to commit to a week-long project? Unsure about a multi-day trip in the Wilderness? This is the perfect opportunity for you - get a taste of adventure as a Northwoods volunteer in a single Saturday! Paddle across Poplar Lake to the Lizz Lake portage. Volunteers will spend the day working alongside a Forest Service Wilderness Ranger building a boardwalk on a portion of the trail. This project includes a 30 minute canoe ride across the lake and a short, 5-minute hike to the project area.

Meeting Location and Time: Rockwood Lodge and Outfitters @ 8:00 am

RSVP: Space is limited! Fill out a registration form here. Registration deadline - June 28th.

More Details: The Northwoods Volunteer Connection will provide all of the tools and equipment needed for this project. Volunteers should wear waterproof, closed-toed shoes (rubber boots are preferred), long pants and bring a long-sleeve shirt. Volunteers should also bring plenty of water.

UPDATE - We will now be providing lunch to participants in this project. Please indicate if you have any dietary restrictions at the time of registration.
