And, another year of highway cleanup begins! Following are the 2017 scheduled cleanup days, but with a new twist:

  • Saturday, July 15, with Sunday, July 16, as an alternate in case of rain; and

  • Saturday, September 23, with Sunday, September 24, as an alternate in case of rain.

The new twist - each time you volunteer, your name will be entered into a drawing at the end of the year to win a new Savage Model 11 Hunter 223. rifle. We need 12-15 people for each scheduled cleanup, so your odds of winning are high, especially if you volunteer more than once. And, make this a family event by bringing the kids (if they're 12 or older) - they too will each have a chance to win the rifle. Recognizing that summer calendars fill quickly, we ask that you email Greg Hoiem at hoiem5447@comcast.net NOW to get your name on the schedule. We will also have a sign-up sheet at the monthly meetings.

We meet at the Meijer #50 MDOT car pool lot, at 5531 28th Street (corner of Kraft Ave SE and 28th St.). Meet time is 7:45 a.m., where we will have coffee and donuts. We will head out to start cleaning at 8:00 a.m., with each cleanup taking less than 2 hours to complete. Be sure to bring a pair of gloves. MDOT supplies trash bags and safety vests. See you there!

Those volunteering should visit this website, www.michigan.gov/adoptahighway, and view the safety video [HERE].

AWLSNestled in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming, the American Wilderness Leadership School (“AWLS”) provides the perfect atmosphere for educational programs. Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms, AWLS has provided an accredited wildlife management program for 5,473 primary and secondary teachers. The school offers six dates each summer for these fun and exciting eight-day sessions. Some of the topics covered include wildlife conservation and management, endangered species and outdoor ethics, ecosystems, economic contribution of sportsman in conservation, outdoor survival and the shooting sports – firearm safety, shotgun, rifle, and archery. Participants also enjoy a whitewater rafting trip on the Snake River.

Over the years, our Chapter has provided many scholarships to Michigan educators desiring to attend AWLS. These $900 scholarships are available to both primary and secondary teachers interested in attending the school and improving their ability to impact their students’ knowledge of the great outdoors! Please help our Michigan chapter by nominating a teacher for our club to sponsor. To learn more about AWLS go to the SCI website at SafariClubFoundation.org/Education/AWLS. If you know of an educator who may be interested in attending AWLS, please get in contact with a Chapter board member to apply for a scholarship. This is a great opportunity for the educator, the kids, and our Chapter to get involved in the great outdoors!
