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 are currently working with Foster School 5th graders on various projects.
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.
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!
Help remove and treat invasive species at Cartier Park! With the support from the City of Ludington and the Mason-Lake Conservation District, volunteers work to treat a variety of invasive species like Garlic Mustard, Japanese Knotweed, Barberry and Oriental Bittersweet.
The Ludington area is renowned for its amazing beach experience! There are several miles of beautiful beaches open to the public. Join AFFEW in keeping our beaches clean. This is a perfect family, friendly experience and a way to make new friends!
