The Power Upper Elementary School Nature Club hosts its first Harvest Festival Saturday, Oct. 27, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., at the school, which is located off Gill Road between Eight and Nine Mile Roads in Farmington Hills.
The event celebrates Make a Difference Day and the club's receipt of a Brooksie Way Mini-Grant.
Activities will include moving plants and rocks, pulling weeds, spreading mulch, cutting herbs from the herb garden and preparing flower beds for winter, along with maintaining the pool area. Visitors can tour the Schoolyard Habitat gardens at 11 a.m. and learn more about birds and how the gardens support them through displays on the site.
Anyone who wants to enjoy a picnic lunch is asked to bring a dish to pass; main course and drinks will be provided. There will also be prizes donated by local businesses.
For information, contact Lynn Halton, UMtrueblue@sbcglobal.net or 248-476-6615.
