At MMAEC, we strive to make the environment a better place – so naturally, going outside and getting involved in our community is a priority
Spring is a busy time at MMAEC!
The Oak room spent time on the Muskegon Lake shoreline taking part in the 26th annual Grand Trunk Restoration Day.
Students removed invasive species, cleaned up trash, and learned about the ecosystem in and around Muskegon Lake.
The Birch room visited McLaughlin Urban Farm and helped to plan spring peas and get the gardens ready for late spring planting. Some of the food raised on the farm will be available at the Muskegon Farmer’s Market this spring/summer.
The Cedar room worked to split and transplant some of our larger flowers into our gardens in the front of the school, they also cleaned rocks that were no longer being used in our landscaping and added them to our pond and stream ecosystem in the school. The rocks provide shelter for the crayfish as well as a natural terrain for the plants and snails that inhabiting the pond.
