Celebrating the Huston-Rausch-Paprocki Reserve

September 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Earlier this year, the Land Conservancy of West Michigan added the 43-acre Huston-Rausch-Paprocki Reserve to Flower Creek Dunes Nature Preserve, more than doubling its size. Because of your support, the preserve now includes a mature hardwood forest near the lakeshore that migrating animals like butterflies, hawks and songbirds depend on for food and shelter as they travel along the windy coast of Lake Michigan. We are grateful for all the supporters that helped ensure the permanent protection and enjoyment of this natural land.

Join us for a dedication to celebrate this achievement!

When: Thursday, September 30, 5:00-7:00 PM (open house)
Where: Flower Creek Dunes Nature Preserve. Park in the Meinert County Park parking lot.

The evening will include naturalist-led hikes. A short ceremony will begin at 5:45 PM. Light refreshments will be provided. This is an outdoor event—please be sure to dress for the weather!

The Land Conservancy is taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. For your safety, registration is required for this event. Please RSVP by September 24 either online or by calling 616-552-9946.
