Volunteers planting beside Plaster Creek

  • Saturday, October 26, 2019
  • 8:30 AM–12:00 PM
  • Covenant Fine Arts Center

Celebrate 10 years of watershed research, education, and restorative action with a morning of reflective art and hands-on planting.

Please join our final 10th anniversary celebration in collaboration with the Calvin University Art Department and English Department under the theme of Dwelling: Our Watershed in Image and Word.

"What does it mean to dwell faithfully in the Plaster Creek Watershed and how does art play a role in helping us connect with our communities and the places we call home?"

A short conversation with artists will be followed by a brief description of the current restoration project at Christ Church. Attendees then travel to Christ Church (2500 Breton Ave SE) to plant native plants in a bioswale. This project aims to curb erosion in the downstream ravine leading to Plaster Creek.

Refreshments, student poetry and photography exhibits available at 8:30am; education begins at 9:00am; restoration activity at 10:30am

Come dressed for the weather and bring gloves, if desired.

Family friendly.

Please RSVP with plastercreekstewards@calvin.edu or fill out this form for planning purposes and let us know if you need a carpool. The Dwelling poetry and photography exhibition and related programming is sponsored in part by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA).

Location details

The Celebration begins in the CFAC with student art and poetry displayed between the Center Art Gallery and Room 135. Scones and hot drinks will also be available.
