Big Tree Hunt Contest - Michigan

ReLeaf Michigan, a non-profit tree planting and education organization, is celebrating Michigan trees with its 14th Michigan Big Tree Hunt Contest. This free contest runs now through September 3, 2019 and is open to participants of all ages.

Join Michiganders across all 83 counties to hunt for the largest trees in the state. Big trees can be found anywhere: a backyard, a local park, or a hiking trail. When the contest closes certificates and prizes will be awarded for the largest tree submitted from each Michigan County, the largest tree found by a youth hunter (15 and younger) and adult hunter (16 and older), the largest Eastern White Pine found in the state and for potential state champion trees. To enter your big tree, visit www.bigtreehunt.com for an online entry form or for information on where to find a paper entry form.

ReLeaf Michigan started the Michigan Big Tree Hunt in 1993 to celebrate our state’s beauty and gather information about Michigan’s biggest trees. Contest entries provide potential state champion trees to Michigan’s Big Tree Registry as well as the National Register of Big Trees. Since Michigan champion trees die or may be removed, contest entries are a wonderful opportunity for all age groups to help track these vital, historical, living landmarks.

Rock the Island Music Festival – Saginaw
Jul 20 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Rock the Island Music Festival - Saginaw

This Christian music festival is fun for the whole family!

While sitting around a breakfast table in early 2012, discussing the less than positive direction in which youth of our area seemed to be heading, a group of local business people wondered what they could do to stop the downward spiral and change the direction. Their answer was to provide a safe, family friendly, one day concert event, designed purposely to encourage social and racial diversity and kindness. An event filled with only positive messages. A day for fun and laughter, a day that entire families could enjoy together.

A committee was assembled, a budget was set and the local business community contributed $60,000 toward the inaugural event. To sum it up: Over 3,000 were in attendance, many ministries participated and the community embraced Rock The Island Festival!

Since 2012 we have seen thousands of people every year come to Ojibway Island to enjoy the festival. We’ve also had the opportunity to speak into the lives of thousands of students in our community through Rock the Schools. We are so thankful for what has happened and excited for what lies ahead as we continue to invest in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
