MICHIGAN CITY | In recognition of Arbor Day, the Shirley Heinze Land Trust will host a volunteer tree planting at Ambler Flatwoods nature preserve from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. This 350-acre parcel of boreal flatwoods habitat is home to over 300 native plant species and has over five miles of hiking trails through a variety of habitat types. On this workday volunteers will be planting trees on a portion of the preserve that is currently being reforested after a long history of agricultural use. Shovels will be used to plant a variety of deciduous hardwood tree species. Volunteers will want to bring leather work gloves or planting gloves. Lunch will be provided. RSVP to or (219) 242-8558.

Shirley Heinze Land Trust has been protecting natural land in the southern Lake Michigan watershed since 1981. For more information on Shirley Heinze Land Trust, visit and like them on Facebook.
