    Eco-Stewardship Work Day

    5:30 PM-8:00 PM
    May-18-2017
    1715 Hillburn Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504, USA
    1715 Hillburn Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504, USA

    Eco-Stewardship work focuses on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean-up and removal of invasive species (like buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle) on several sections of our 143-acre site. Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify and manage plants that may be growing in their own backyards, their schools or city parks and how those plants and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.

    This volunteer option is for individuals or groups that would like to attend an open volunteer event, like Eco-Stewardship Work Days, without becoming a registered Blandford Nature Center volunteer. Please keep in mind that while a Volunteer Application does not need to be completed, you will still be required to sign a Liability Waiver at these volunteer events.

    NEW THIS YEAR! We are offering work days on the Blandford Farm for those volunteers that are wanting to get their veggies on and hands dirty. Currently, we will offer these days once a month however there is the potential to add more days as the season becomes busier.  Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify, harvest, and manage produce, herbs, and sometimes, farm livestock. Volunteers will gain knowledge on how those plants, livestock, and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.
