AmeriCorps Service Project

On Friday, May 17th a group of nearly 100 AmeriCorps members from the mid-Michigan region honored the late Russ Mawby, a noted Michigan philanthropist, with a day of service at Fenner Nature Center in Lansing, MI. Together, the AmeriCorps members cleaned and prepared learning materials for children’s camps, mulched 3 square yards of trails, and  pulled over 1000 lbs. of invasive plants!

  • Advise MI/MSU Advising Corps

  • College Completion Corps
  • Ingham County Health Department AmeriCorps
  • Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness AmeriCorps

Fenner Nature Center is a non profit nature conservancy.
