March for Science

This is in appreciation of our community for supporting the thinkers and the tinkerers, the doers and the dreamers, the builders and creators, the healers and the believers, the questioners and the wonderers. This is a promise from these scientists, these every-day people, to work for everyone everywhere. In that spirit, we invite all to join us in this journey. Science lives in the harmony of debate and we intend to watch this mechanism of human intelligence and exploration thrive proudly and without hesitation. Get more info here!

Book Club Meeting

Our book this month is - Grand River by Norma Lewis
 
At 265 miles, the Grand River is Michigan’s longest waterway, and it was once considered one of the Midwest’s most important. The river starts as a trickle just south of Jackson and gains power as it surges toward Lake Michigan in Grand Haven. Trappers first used the river to trade with the Native American villages along its banks. Later, the lumber industry transported logs via the Grand. The river shaped the towns and cities that grew up along its banks, providing them with transportation and power for manufacturers, including the once-renowned Grand Rapids furniture industry. Fertile farmlands have always played an important role in the history of the Grand River Valley. Today, the river is used primarily for recreation, including boating, fishing, and, in Grand Ledge, rock climbing.
We will meet Saturday, April 22nd - 10:30 a.m. at Pomegranate Books
