Learn how you can volunteer at the historic W.K. Kellogg Manor House

Hickory Corners, Mich. — If you’re interested in local history and nature, or enjoy helping others learn, we invite you to become a volunteer at the W.K. Kellogg Manor House. We are holding an open house on March 20 for new volunteers to explore what volunteering at the Manor House might be like.

We offer opportunities for you to share your time and talents and meet new people. Volunteer positions include docents, greeters, holiday market help, handyperson tasks, office assistance and more. Our current volunteers will share about each position, explain their tasks and share with you why they love volunteering here.

Two sessions of the open house will be held on March 20 for participants to choose from; one from 2 – 4 p.m. and one from 6 – 8 p.m. The Manor House is located at 3700 E. Gull Lake Dr. in Hickory Corners. To learn more, visit conference.kbs.msu.edu, email conference@kbs.msu.edu, or call 269-671-2400.

The W.K. Kellogg Manor House is part of the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station. Celebrate with us our legacy of conservation as we mark 90 years since W.K. Kellogg donated the lands that now make up KBS to Michigan State University. Our commitment to research, education and outreach stands on the foundation of W.K. Kellogg’s vision for cutting-edge science and learning.

As MSU’s largest off-campus educational complex, we’ve put our land-grant values into practice as we’ve provided the public with examples of science’s crucial role in sustaining natural and managed communities for nearly a hundred years. As we look forward, our students and faculty are working to understand and solve real-world environmental problems for a better tomorrow. To learn more about KBS, visit us online at kbs.msu.edu.
