Volunteer Lunch n’ Learn

July 24, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Grab your lunch and join our volunteer coordinator Claire virtually! We’ll have special guests and Michigan historians Christine Byron and Tom Wilson on to discuss the history of Grand Rapids parks.

You’ll hear where the first parks in Grand Rapids were located, how new parks were developed, and interesting tidbits from the Grand Rapids Historical Commission’s book, Keep on the Grass: A Brief History of Grand Rapids Parks.
