Increasingly Hot Temperatures and Lack of Precipitation Pose a Threat on Newly Planted Trees

Increasingly Hot Temperatures and Lack of Precipitation Pose a Threat on Newly Planted Trees

Nothing has a greater impact on new tree survival than adequate watering. In the past two years the City of Grand Rapids has planted over 1,600 trees which are in need of watering this summer. The City is working hard to keep up with its current watering practices and will continue to make improvements, but as the temperature continues to rise so does the need for more watering to help keep these trees healthy.

The Hills are Alive

The Hills are Alive

The hills are alive once more with the sound of kids and parents alike out and sliding on the hills at Union High School on Grand Rapids Northwest side. There is lots of squealing, shouting and laughs as they all take turns sliding down the hills and then trudging back up for another spin.

What an awesome way for families to spend time together while getting fresh air and lots of exercise. And, it’s all free.

The Westside of Grand Rapids is very fortunate to have two great sliding areas with Union and also Richmond Park. Take time to check them out!
