CALLING ALL PLANT HEROES- Calvin College Ecosystem Preserve

Date: Friday, November 9, 2018
Location:   Bunker Interpretive Center. Please note: Our main entrance at 1750 East Beltline Ave. SE is still under construction; instead, please use the directions in the description.
Time: 1:00 -4:00 PM
Event Cost: Free


The good news: Our new native garden is halfway finished and looking great!
The challenge: We have 10,000 more natives to plant before the ground freezes!

Our remaining plants are bursting out of their pots, anxious to be settled in the earth before winter arrives. BE A HERO and join us during the next three weeks to help us wrap up this project by populating the spring ephemeral, cottage, and tall grass pollinator gardens, as well as the main entrance. We welcome all the helping hands we can find, so please spread the word and bring a buddy.

From the south: Drive north on East Beltline past Burton Street. When you pass under the overhead walkway, watch for an exit lane on the right. Exit the Beltline, turn right at the stop sign and follow East Campus Drive around to parking lot 16 and Prince Conference Center.

From the north: Drive south on East Beltline past Lake Drive, and exit at the first opportunity to the right. Make a left onto a campus road, and left again at the next two stop signs. Go under the Beltline, then right at the fork. Follow East Campus Drive around to parking lot 16 and Prince Conference Center.

To reach our building: enter Prince Conference Center through the east door, go straight through the hallway and out the rear door to the trail leading to the Bunker Interpretive Center. We appreciate Prince Conference Center staff accommodating us during our construction; please be respectful of their hotel guests as you pass through the building.
