June 29, 2019 @ 1:00 am

June 29 - Preserve our Urban Green Space - Nature Center at Shaker Lakes  Our Cubs beat the heat by heading into the woods and helping local plants thrive by pulling vinca vines. We learned that vinca aren't "bad" plants, they just aren't very good at sharing space with the other plants in the forest! We also learned about the amazing urban oasis that the Nature Center provides in the middle of our city. Nice job cubs!
