AFFEW Programs & Activities


Over the years AFFEW has held numerous presentations on environmental concerns, workshops and balanced forums. We also work with local businesses to encourage sustainable practices and partner with U Dig It Community Garden’s summer youth Dig It! program.


AFFEW partners with several local organizations to maintain sustainable practices and address environmental concerns. By building relationships, we are able to make a difference within the community by providing education, volunteers and support.

Earth Day

Join AFFEW for our annual Earth Day celebration! The day will include workshops, kid’s activities, a family hike and green enterprise booths. A variety of raffles will take place throughout the day and food will be available for purchase. A must do!

Invasive Species

Help remove and treat invasive species at Cartier Park! With the support from the City of Ludington and North Country CISMA, volunteers work to treat a variety of invasive species like Garlic Mustard, Japanese Knotweed,  Barberry and Oriental Bittersweet.
