The Great Lakes Energy People Fund has granted/gifted Howard Christensen Nature Center (HCNC) a new commercial chainsaw.
The nature center had an old chainsaw that broke down more than it was in use and thanks to the Great Lakes Energy People Fund, HCNC hopes to get many years of use from such a magnificent gift.
With this chainsaw, HCNC will be creating major projects they will include the following:
A nature center playground made from only wood items, which will include drums, xylophone (PVC piping that children can play musical tunes on), sandbox, balance beams and more.
Cut up firewood for camping to help create sustainable income for the center.
Cut down some trees around the center. Therefore, the center can consider using solar energy panels to produce alternative energy.
To cut up fallen trees during storms that have become a nuisance or danger to humans.
HCNC is open from 9 am – 4 pm Monday through Friday and 12 pm to 4 pm on the weekends and closed on the weekends for special occasions. Please visit www.lilysfrogpad.com for more information, or call (616) 675-3158.
