Creekshead Preserve Self-Guided Earth Day Hike
April 22 - April 25
Celebrate Earth Day!
This week we’re celebrating our love for the Earth with a self-guided hike through Creekshead Preserve. This short walk – just over a half mile – takes you through a forested oasis of beach-maple-basswood trees and spring ephemeral wildflowers to enjoy the sounds of spring returning in the chorus of frogs that call the property home.
As we celebrate, we’re acutely aware that many of the things we all love about nature are under threat due to climate change. We’ve partnered with Alpha Phi Omega, an Eastern Michigan University service group to put together informational signs exploring how Legacy helps mitigate climate change locally. Our Earth Day signs are composed almost entirely of recycled materials, some donated by SCRAP Creative Reuse and some pulled from the local garbage pile by Legacy staff.
Head out for your self-guided hike at Creekshead anytime 4/22/22-4/25/22, and remember: we’re not helpless in the fight against climate change! Together, our small actions will help create a better future for us all. Happy Earth Day
Trails may be muddy, so make sure you wear proper footwear. If parking options are limited, head over to the nearby Shatter Nature Preserve to kill some time while you wait for a spot to open up.
