Raptor Feeding
Saturday, May 14, 2016 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Ages: All ages
Free

Join LSNC raptor staff every second Saturday of the month for dinner time. During this hour, you can see staff prepare scrumptious raptor food for our wild owls, hawks and eagles — and, yes, that does mean dead mice and rats! This is a great time to see the birds doing their most natural behavior … eating. This will also be an opportunity to touch feathers, see a hawk or owl pellet, discover more about bird anatomy and ask our expert staff questions regarding the birds and other ways you can learn more about them! 
Please call 734-997-1553 with any questions.

There's nothing quite as relaxing as sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. One Sunday a month, we'll be stoking the fires here at LSNC. Bring your family, camp chairs, and s'mores fixings. We'll provide a blazing outdoor campfire and plenty of marshmallows.

Getting outside with your toddler can be a fun way to spend a morning!  Join us as we take a guided walk along our trails to see what each month during the seasons brings us.  Each walk will last about 1 hour and will take a very leisurely pace to accommodate the tot's little legs. This program is designed for adults to stay with their children. The group will meet on the front porch of the Leslie House.
