Science Community Day

My internship at Blandford has allowed me to meet so manlaureny wonderful people! More recently I have met  Blandford’s person of the month- Professor Lauren Elliott. She knows that invasive plants are the second greatest threat to our natural communities next to ​habitat loss from development. She is taking action to engage her students in service learning at Blandford. She has helped host and participate in three work days at Blandford and has made a significant positive contribution to Blandford’s long term land management goals. How can you get involved? Go visit and suppport the Science Day at Grand Rapids Community College this Saturday 10-2pm or pledge to remove Buckthorn from your yard.
Learn how to guard and defend against alien invaders! Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about invasive species in Michigan, what impact they have on the environment and what you can do to help! There will also be stickers and pencils too!  The kids will have make “Wanted” Posters. They can join the GRCC GUARDIAN GANG and learn how to guard the environment from these alien invaders!
A Blandford Nature Center representative, lead eco-steward Heather Bell and the West Michigan Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area Coordinator, Drew Rayner, will be on site to answer any questions. You can also learn about Blandford Nature Center  and all it has to offer the community!
