Instead of dreaming of a white Christmas, dream of a green one! Pierce Cedar Creek Institute is hosting an event to showcase environmentally friendly ways to celebrate the holiday, with or without snow on December 14.

Families of all ages and sizes are welcome to join the institute to learn how to decorate gifts and Christmas trees with recycled or biodegradable materials. There will also be an ornament decorating station and a gingerbread house construction site where guests can build and eat their own gingerbread house.

The event will have food, music, and even sled dogs making an appearance. The sled dog demonstration will be given by renowned sled dog owner and race competitor Annie Hammond of Kalamazoo from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

The cost for members is $6, and $8 for non-members. Families can get in for $25, but must say how many people are coming on the reservation.

On December 15, live music will be provided by the Kalamazoo Saxophone Quartet who will be performing from 12:15 to 1 p.m.
