Plaster Creek Stewards Spring Event and the Center Art Gallery at Calvin College come together to appreciate the work of pollinators and the habitats that support them.
We hope to see you buzzing into the Calvin College Covenant Fine Arts Center April 13th (9:00am-12:00 noon) to celebrate our 10th year of watershed work. The Center Art Gallery will open at 8:30 am for guests, and Nate Haan will share his research with pollinators at 9:00 am in the Recital Hall next door. Following these stimulating experiences, we will head out into the watershed to get our hands dirty restoring habitat to support pollinators and aid the health of the creek. All ages welcome. RSVP with firstname.lastname@example.org for planning purposes (but don’t let it stop you from coming spontaneously!).
Artists Craig Goodworth and David Hooker are interested in memory, place, ritual, landscape, community, and process. Both explore these ideas by looking to the natural world. Themes of bees and beekeeping are central to their work and to this exhibition at the Center Art Gallery, Calvin College Covenant Fine Arts Center from March 7—April 27, 2019.
Plaster Creek Stewards' ten years of work in the Plaster Creek watershed affect more than just water quality. Many of the same practices we use to help Plaster Creek are also beneficial to native insects, many of which we depend on for pollination and natural pest control. Come learn from Nate Haan (past Program Coordinator for Plaster Creek Stewards) how rain gardens, prairie plantings, and other creek-friendly practices contribute to insect conservation.
This is the first of several events Plaster Creek Stewards will be holding in 2019 to celebrate 10 years of working diligently with partners in the Plaster Creek watershed. The watershed community has grown over the years and we hope you will take the opportunity to celebrate with us at this and other events.
