Support the Beal Garden Red Cedar River Restoration Project
The Red Cedar River is the current that flows through all of us and connects us as Spartans. But the river is more than just a sentimental icon, it’s a living ecosystem, a wildlife corridor, and a habitat for rare plants. Did you know that at least three plant species on Michigan’s Threatened plant list grow along the Red Cedar on campus? But over the past several decades the riverbank has suffered from erosion and become infested with invasive buckthorn, honeysuckle, and lesser celandine. Help Beal Botanical Garden restore the riverbank in the garden and in our Campus Natural Areas, especially Sanford and Red Cedar Natural Areas.
