GRAYLING - Environmental conservation nonprofit Huron Pines is working together with healthcare professionals from Munson Healthcare Grayling Hospital (MHGH) to  get people active, outside and exploring nature. The first event kicked off in Grayling on June 8, 2019.

 “Our events promote simple activities for the whole family, like taking a short walk along a trail, to get people thinking about easy ways to be more active on a daily basis," said Cheryl Melroy Community Health Manager with Munson Healthcare Grayling Hospital

As a conservation organization, the goal of Huron Pines is to support sustainable communities with protected natural resources.

“The more we can get people out in nature, experiencing the connections between water, woods and wildlife, the more they begin to care about the resources that surround them,” Abby Ertel, Community Program Lead at Huron Pines explained. “We want people to leave our events with a better understanding of nature, their place in it, and how a healthy environment protects our community’s most basic health needs like clean water, fresh air and space to play, explore and be active.”
