MHAS needs volunteers to help maintain trails, board walks, check signs, and assist with other outdoor projects at Neilson Spearhead Center and Preserve (NSC) - our environmental science facility 11 miles southwest of Bemidji. 

NSC is a 466-acre tract of remote forest, wetlands, and bogs completely surrounding Spearhead Lake. Students, school groups, and visitors can hike through the preserve on a trail system that takes you around the entire lake. Along the way you can see eagle nests, towering pines, delicate bog flowers, and more. We also have a classroom/laboratory, canoe landing, caretaker's residence, and other out-buildings.

Keeping everything at NSC running and open takes help - and we do it all with volunteers. If you like to work on outdoor projects we'd love to have you come out and join us on a work day. Sign up to be contacted when we have a project that needs assistance.
