Technology Collides with Environmental Studies in the Allendale Community

The BizStream team volunteered their time alongside Allendale community members, Allendale Public School faculty, and Grand Valley State University professors for a number of fun activities.

BizStream donated and helped plant 25 oak trees, constructed minnow traps, got our hands dirty in the butterfly garden, and assisted in preparation of the much anticipated duck race.

BizStream was most excited to sponsor the What Lives in a Drop of Water? tent, an interactive exhibit where participants could get an up close look at microscopic organisms projected onto three large monitors while GVSU professors explained what these (very) little creatures are all about. 

The event concluded with a complimentary lunch and a group photo!

A number of sponsors came together to support this event. Thank you to Countryside Greenhouse, Allendale True Value, Allendale Public Schools, Stitchtime, Peppino's Pizzeria & Sports Grille, Allendale Rotary Club, Grand Valley State University, Allendale Community Foundation, Schepers Concrete Construction, and yours truly, BizStream.
