Volunteer Program
Hawk Woods is looking for volunteers.  If interested in how to become an official volunteer please give us a call at (248) 370-9353. 
We need assistance with animal care, school and classroom visits, trail inspections along with greeting visitors at the nature center. 

Hawk Woods offers endless opportunities for outdoor recreational activities.  This unique facility offers groomed nature trails, a marsh boardwalk, a heated restroom/shower facility open year-round, a covered picnic shelter that can be reserved in season, a two-story Log Cabin Lodge with five overnight camping cabins, all complimented by 80 acres of beautiful woods, meadows and marsh.

The Lodge is a two-story log cabin which can be rented for meetings and/or activities on an hourly basis all year long. This unique facility, located in what seems like the middle of the woods up-north, is an ideal place for off-site business meetings, birthday parties, and family get-togethers. For an affordable and unique alternative for your next outing, consider the Dale E. Fisk Hawk Woods Nature Center Lodge. Call the Parks & Recreation at 248-370-9353 or visit our website for rental details and give it a try.
