The Ray Township Public Library is honored to have been chosen as a recipient of the I Speak for Trees grant from Random House Children's Books and Dr. Seuss. 

We applied on Earth Day 2021, and were chosen as 1 of 101 projects that sought to make a positive change in our community.

We are teaming up with The Clinton River Watershed Council and Master Gardeners from MSU Extension to teach our children and their families about the importance of native plants.  Native plants provide, food, shelter, and improved soil conditions that greatly benefit our local wildlife, pollinators, and the future of our planet.

We will be hosting a program to help spread this important message.  

Check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.

Join us for an all ages event made possible by a grant from Dr. Suess and Random House Children's Books with support from the Clinton River Watershed Council. We will have a presentation by the CRWC, Seed ball making, and a nature walk to explore natives and invasive plants in our very own park. We will also be joined by BMO Logistics who will help us learn about native butterflies and moths and how we can help them. This presentation is suitable for ALL AGES and FREE for all. Please join us as we learn to speak for the trees, because unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not.
