The Michigan Wildlife Council is dedicated to increasing public awareness about wildlife conservation efforts in the state of Michigan through their "Here For Generations" campaign.

As part of the campaign they've highlighted several conservation efforts taking place right here in West Michigan.

Plaster Creek Stewards is a collaboration of Calvin College faculty, staff, and students working with local schools, churches, and community partners to restore the health and beauty of the Plaster Creek Watershed.

Gail Heffner and Dave Warners are professors at Calvin College and coordinators for the program. They joined us to talk about the project.
