Youth Small Game Hunt 


 SaturdayFebruary 27, 2016

 8:00 am – 1:00 pm  
 Ingham Conservation District
 1031 W Dexter Trail, Mason

 The ICD, in partnership with the MDNR, MUCC and other local partners, is hosting its second youth hunt.  This is a  free, mentored hunt for youth ages 9-17.  Hunters must be licensed to participate and accompanied by a parent or  legal guardian.  To help ensure safety, only single shot or pump shotguns and appropriate ammunition will be permitted.  Hunting groups will have the option to pursue rabbits or squirrels.  Some hunting parties will hunt on the Conservation District property and some will utilize the nearby Dansville State Game Area.  After a morning of hunting, stay for lunch and some great prizes!  Registration and more information will be available in January.  You must be registered to attend.  If spaces fill, use the contact us page to email our office and request to be put on a waiting list.  

Garlic Mustard Pull

garlic mustard

Saturday May (2016 date TBD)

10:00 am – Noon  
Ingham Conservation District
1031 W Dexter Trail, Mason

This invasive plant spreads rapidly, but is easy to hand-pull.  This is a great service opportunity for Scouts and anyone interested in local conservation and learning more about invasive plant management.  After the pull, stay for some geocaching!  The ICD has 10 geocaches on the property.  See the Home page to download coodinates.  If pulling garlic mustard at home,  always bag it and dispose of it in your regular trash.  Do not compost invasive plants.
