In Grand Rapids many people think that nature or even preserving nature is something that happens far away, but that’s far from the truth. The Maas Nature Preserve in Rockford is just a 20 minute drive away from the big city, and they are doing great things to keep the area nice and green. Once littered with trash, the Maas Family Nature preserve is now being carefully and methodically groomed back to its natural state. A beaming example of wildlife conservation in action is the Maas Family Nature Preserve, owned and cared for by the Land Conservancy of West Michigan. The Maas Family Nature Preserve is located at 10450 Summit Avenue in Rockford. For more information visit naturenearby.org.
