Picnic with Pollinators
Sunday, August 5, 2018 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Ages: Youth 5-12 and their families
$5 per person

Bring a picnic lunch and come on over for an afternoon of fun! This is the third in a three-part program series for families to play, explore, and learn outside together. We'll buzz and flutter around LSNC's native plant gardens to discover the important relationships between insects and plants. Families will enjoy a short interpretive hike, and a game or two, with our wildlife staff. Bring your own picnic lunch and reusable cups, and we'll provide ice-cold lemonade. We encourage you to "make a day of it" when you stop by our Critter House Open Hours before the program (open 10am-1pm). Lunch will be the first half-hour, then we'll fly into our program!

Registration is required by July 25th. Register for this program online, or call 734-997-1553.

Join LSNC raptor staff for feeding time for the birds. During this hour, watch staff prepare and give scrumptious raptor food — and yes, that does mean dead mice and rats!- to the birds housed on our site, including wild owls, hawks and eagles.  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, and discover more about bird anatomy. Come join our raptor staff, and ask questions regarding the birds and other ways you can learn more about them!
