The Friends of the Porkies is an organization run by volunteers.  By donating their time and talents to our numerous programs and activities, members and volunteers support the park.  We are thankful to our volunteers, we couldn't do it without you!

Volunteer Opportunities

You can volunteer to help the Friends and the Park in every season and in many ways. Listed below are some of our current volunteer opportunities.

Here are some of our immediate needs:

Archery Program

Katie Urban, Park Interpreter, is enthusiastically heading up the Kids' Outdoor Skills Academy at the Porkies, which currently is focusing on an archery program. She'll be running the archery certification course in mid-May - no experience required! Help is needed for the summer program which runs from mid-June until Labor Day and then again in the fall for the school groups.

For more information, please contact Katie Urban at Urbank1@michigan.gov or 906-885-5206.

Roadside Cleanup

As usual, we'll be scheduling the roadside cleanup of M-107 sometime in May. If you'd like to get out, breathe the fresh air, and enjoy spring while beautifying the area, please watch your email and our social media for more information when it becomes available!

Summer Reading Program

The Ontonagon Township Library’s summer reading program is back. For information on how you can help, visit the library web site.

Books for Library Boxes

Speaking of reading, we could also use donations of books for all ages to be used in the library boxes at the Park!

If you'd like to donate books, please contact Katie Urban at Urbank1@michigan.gov or 906-885-5206.
