Protecting Our Homeland

Stuff We Love
Oct. 8, 2022

Northern Michigan is a special place to live and work for many reasons, but chief among the area’s benefits is our beautiful—and in some places, still untouched—natural setting. In an effort to make sure that beauty exists for decades to come, Traverse City nonprofit SEEDS Ecology and Education Centers teamed up with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service this summer for habitat restoration projects in the Huron-Manistee National Forests. The project was helmed by SEEDS’ EcoCorps, a “green collar” program for ages 16 and up to learn about and work on the restoration of public and private lands, installing and maintaining ecologically regenerative landscapes, farming, and green infrastructure. The partnership with the Forest Service improved hundreds of acres of wildlife habitat, rehabilitated camping sites near Lake Michigan Recreation Area, restored habitat for pollinators, and planted 500 native wildflowers. EcoCorps, we salute you for your work protecting the places we love most! Learn more at
