Stewardship Workday at The Highlands: Hosted by the Land Conservancy of West Michigan and Blandford Nature Center

December 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Land Conservancy and Blandford Nature Center for a native plant seeding at The Highlands! Help us transform 25 acres of this former golf course into a vibrant natural landscape.

Afterwards, head next door to Blandford Nature Center’s Pioneer Holiday event, where they’ll be doing crafts in the Schoolhouse, playing snow-games in the school yard and decorating cookies sitting by the warmth of the cabin fire!

   

About Second Saturday Events

The Land Conservancy’s 16 nature preserves contain an incredible diversity of natural features including prairies, forests, and wetlands that are great places to explore. However, invasive species and altered natural processes threaten to degrade the ecological quality of many of our preserves. Active management is often needed to ensure the long-term sustainability of these wonderful natural areas, and we need your help. Fortunately, through our Second Saturdays event series, there are now plenty of opportunities to get involved.

From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month, the Land Conservancy will host a volunteer event that focuses on ecological restoration activities including invasive species removal, seed collecting, and native plant installation. Volunteers may also be involved with trail maintenance, general clean-up, or other tasks that help visitors better enjoy our magnificent natural areas.

Tools, work gloves, water, and snacks will be provided.
