Earth Day Workday with Great Lakes Brewing Company

Help make your corner of this Beautiful Blue Marble a little bit better by pitching in for an afternoon of sweaty, outdoor volunteering  — followed by a fun celebration of the day’s progress at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange!

Bow in the Clouds is truly “nature in the city” at its finest, and the potential to connect people with the natural world here is fantastic. So on Earth Day this year, come get connected with this vibrant land and help others to do the same! Supported by the generosity of Great Lakes Brewing Company, SWMLC volunteers will have an opportunity to work on a variety of tasks including tackling invasive shrubs that block the view, improving boardwalks, creating new trails, pulling garlic mustard, and picking up trash.

Give back to the planet that’s given everything to us, then join us afterward in celebrating our hard work at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange for a well-earned complimentary pint on Great Lakes Brewing Company!

Your participation is always appreciated, but space at this special workday is limited!
You must RSVP for this special workday, so email or call 269-324-1600 to make sure you get in on the Earth Day Workday Celebration!

SWMLC greatly appreciates partners like Great Lakes Brewing Company that enthusiastically support conservation and organizations like ours in their distribution area.

WHEN: Saturday, April 22, 1 – 4 pm

WHERE: Bow in the Clouds Preserve, City of Kalamazoo

BRING: Work-wear (sturdy shoes, grubby work clothes, weather appropriate) and gloves. Those interested in helping with the wetland boardwalk should wear rubber boots. SWMLC will provide tools, water, and a snack.

DIRECTIONS: Bow in the Clouds is on Nazareth Road (about one mile west of Sprinkle Road), behind Nazareth Campus (home of the Sisters of St. Joseph, 3427 Gull Rd.). From Gull Road, turn north onto Nazareth Road. The preserve entrance is about half a mile ahead on the left side of the road. Look for our old gray barn up off the road just after passing the guard rails.

Anyone is welcome to pitch in to help keep our preserves up to snuff. It’s a wonderful way to experience the preserves with the folks who know them best, plus get acquainted with other active people who share the conservation spirit.
SWMLC Saturday Workdays in the Preserves . . . show us your muscles!
