Saturday, March 20th
(sign up for your time slot in advance) 11:00am-2:00pm

We're going back in time for this spring's Dinosaur Egg Hunt! Join us as we explore archaeological digs, play dino-tastic games, wear super cool explorer hats, hunt for dino eggs, and more. We will have a walking life-sized dinosaur on site plus a cute baby dinosaur with explorer guides to help the kids learn about dinosaurs and let them get an up close look (and photo opp!). Participants will sign up in a 'flight' format so that there is a limited number of people on site at once. We will utilize our trail system to keep things safe and spread out.

Masks will be required and parents are expected to closely supervise their children.

December 14, 2020 DTE Energy Tree Trimming

Trees are a beautiful and vital part of Michigan’s landscape. They’re also the leading cause of power outages and can pose a serious public safety hazard if they grow too near or into power lines.

That's why DTE Energy has a tree trimming program to promote healthy trees and keep the power flowing. Please see the attached map for the planned trimming program in Genoa Township.

Here’s what you can expect once the trimming begins:

• You may see DTE representatives in your yard or neighborhood inspecting the power lines and trees to determine where trimming is needed. Representatives will be wearing high-visibility vests and carrying DTE ID badges.

• If tree work is needed on your property, the representative will knock on your door. If you are not home, we will leave a “Tree Work Scheduled” door card. If you have questions about the work intended for your property, please call the number on the door card. You will have the opportunity to speak to a representative before tree work begins.

• If a tree poses a serious hazard to power lines or if trimming will put the tree’s health at risk, we may need to remove it. In this case, representatives will leave behind additional information and make considerable attempts to work directly with the property owner before removing any trees.

For more information, please visit dteenergy.com/treecare.

November 13, 2020 Local Parks and Recreation Survey for Genoa Township Residents

Genoa Township is working on an updated recreation plan aimed at improving recreation opportunities for township residents.

Parks provide measurable health benefits, from encouraging direct contact with nature and a cleaner environment, to opportunities for physical activity and social interaction. Genoa Township recognizes that having local opportunities to enjoy parks and nature contribute to a healthy, vibrant and sustainable community. Planning for community recreation ensures that the township's resources are spent in a way that provides for current needs and anticipates the future. When our community comes together to plan and support recreation, the resulting action strategies are targeted to what the residents want and will support.

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on our Recreation Plan website: https://arcg.is/XmCTn1
