In 2019, MSAE will partner with the Benzie Conservation District for a day of volunteer work and fun! We will start the day with a local beach clean-up and work with invasive plant removal in the Crystal Mountain area. After a morning of collaboration with the environmentalists, we will join the EduTour group for lunch at Oliver Art Center. Then return to Crystal Mountain for a Mountain Leg Race!
Designed after The Amazing Race Reality TV Show, teams will work together to efficiently and effectively, making wise choices while following a series of clues around the mountain and completing tasks. Teams will race to check-in points for refreshments and regrouping. Each team will receive points based on the order in which they arrive at each check-in location. The team with the most points at the end of the race wins the trophy. The goal is to finish all tasks; the fun is to finish first!
Join us for this day of hard work and hard play! Registration is limited to 30 attendees, so register early; cost per person is $125.00.
All buses will depart at 8:00 a.m. and the event will conclude by 4:00 p.m.
About the Charity
The District’s purpose is to foster the best use of land for the present and future benefits of the community, based on the land’s capabilities and landowners goals. Combating soil erosion, managing surface and groundwater quality and promoting the maintenance of the lands related resources and the aesthetic values are vital to the community’s long range economic well being, from food and timber production to natural resources related industries and tourism. To these ends, the District strives to be a “gateway” to resource management information and service providers, so that citizens may manage their lands for a healthier Benzie County. The Benzie Conservation District provides information and assistance for all your conservation and environmental concerns.
