GREAT LAND INVASIVE SPECIES REMOVAL
Please join the Grand River Environmental Action Team on Saturday, December 3, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. until noon to help remove invasive species from the GREAT Land in Blackman Township. This property consists of over 25 acres with almost a half mile of frontage on the Grand River. You can reach the property by taking Lansing Avenue North from Parnall Road for 0.7 miles, turn right on Cardinal Crest (after second gas station) to its end at Canary Lane. Then turn left onto the gravel drive and you will see the large green pole barn with a red metal roof.
The process to remove the invasive species is labor intensive. Chain saws and loppers are used to cut the woody plants and then they are piled up to naturally decay while providing habitat for birds, mammals and reptiles. The trunks and stems are treated with an herbicide which prevents regrowth of the invasive species.
Be sure to dress warm for the weather as some of our past events have been cold and snowy.
We will be meeting in GREAT’s pole barn on December 3, 2022 and please RSVP to Great by calling 517-416-4234 and leave a message.
