FERTILIZER –The State of Michigan has passed a law banning the use of harmful phosphorus lawn fertilizer in order to protect our water resources.  Check the label before buying fertilizer.  The bag will show a series of three numbers.  Look for the ZERO in the middle to find a phosphorus-free fertilizer that won't pollute our water.  


Act:  Adopt a storm drain on your street and please keep it clean of leaves, dirt, grass clippings, tree branches, and other debris.   


“No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow."
