Northern Michigan Conservation: Mark your calendars for this Northern Michigan natural resource preservation event! Attend the annual Wildflower Rescue meeting on Tuesday, April 10th at the Munneke Room (near the Leland Library), and learn how you can help save Northern Michigan's wildflowers. Your participation will include involvement with the Wildflower Rescue Committee, an extension of the Leelanau Conservancy, which aims to save native plants from destruction.
The meeting will begin with a coffee and social time at 9:30 a.m., followed by a 40-minute talk about invasive plants by Matthew Bertrand of the Grand Traverse Conservation District. Attendees will learn how to help the Wildflower Rescue Committee rescue wildflowers from lands that are being developed, and sell them at the annual Memorial Day Weekend plant sale on the Leland Village Green. All participants will also receive a free copy of “A Field Guide to Michigan Invasive Plants.”
No registration is needed for this event, and everyone with an interest in the conservation of Northern Michigan's natural resources is encouraged to attend.
