    The FLSP returnables program in 2023 resulted in the return of over 62,000 Michigan returnable beverage containers and therefore raised over $6,200 for FLSP programming.  If you are willing to help with this program or would like additional information, please click here to be directed to the volunteer sign-up page at SignUpGenius.

    If you are interested in being contacted about various park maintenance projects that involve physical work, please sign up. By signing up, you agree to be contacted when these projects become available, but you are not committing to any specific projects. These projects include the yearly painting of camp numbers on the blacktop. In 2024, the projects will also involve helping to assemble two covered benches on the road to the lighthouse, spreading gravel along a couple of trail areas, and potentially painting the Lake Michigan Beach House this fall.  If you have questions regarding these volunteer projects, please get in touch with Bob Sasin at (231) 233-8766. If you go into voice mail, please leave a message with your name and phone number.

    FLSP will conduct Michigan Department of Transportation Adopt-A-Highway litter pick-ups in 2024 on the following dates: Monday - July 15; and Monday - September 23.  We will start the clean-up on each of the dates at 5 p.m. Those interested in helping are welcome to join us in the warming shelter parking lot just past the contact station at Ludington State Park.  For the September 23 event, we will meet south of the entrance and river. We need 10 to 12 volunteers to pick up trash along the northernmost 2-mile stretch of M-116 FLSP has adopted.  If we have additional volunteers, we will add nearby areas such as the beach, the Lake Michigan beach house access and parking area, etc. Participants are asked to bring their gloves and to review the safety video MDOT requires Safety Guidelines for the Adopt-A-Highway Program.  

    If we have inclement weather and need to postpone, we will meet the following day. If you have any questions, please email Steve Begnoche. Thanks for your continued support!
