Shelby, MI – Shelby Township, in Oceana County, recently received a tree planting grant from Consumers Energy and Michigan Forestry and Park Association, Inc (MFPA) Community Street and Boulevard Tree Planting Grant Program. As a result, Michigan species of trees were planted along Buchanan Road, outlining the new Shelby Township Park. Shelby Township is incredibly grateful to Consumers Energy’s dedication to programs that support conservation in rural communities.

“Shelby Township has a plan to apply for additional grants in future years, so our residents have an opportunity to participate,” said Richard Raffaelli, Shelby Township Supervisor. “I can’t emphasize enough Consumer Energy’s commitment to communities like ours throughout Michigan, and programs like this are an example of a forward-thinking organization.”
