Summer Plant Party

Please join us for a plant and learn STEM activity for kids with NextGen United Way on Friday, June 28th from 1-3 p.m. The event will be held outside at United Way’s Downtown Muskegon location (31 E. Clay Ave). Each participant will receive a vegetable, herb, or flower to plant and take home. We will be educating kids on how to care for and grow their plant sustainably. This event is free to the public and open to everyone! If there is inclement weather, we will have covered space for the activity as well. Please direct any questions to Sara at or 231-332-4010.
