During each of the last six years, LA students have volunteered at the Woldumar Nature Center in Lansing, Michigan. In good and bad weather, they have cleared and improved trails, removed invasive species, and rebuilt split rail fences.

LAs like to build things. This year’s project attracted their attention because it involves construction of a 16 x 24-foot stage as part of a new amphitheater project. The first phase included digging post holes and installing 19 posts. The spring project will include construction of steps and ramps and installation of the decking.

Woldumar Nature Center is a not-for-profit organization located along the Grand River on Lansing’s west side. It contains 186 acres, five miles of trails, and 1.5 miles of river frontage. Its primary focus is on the education of people, particularly children, about the natural environment.
