Mayfly: Our Annual Fundraising Event

Save The Date! Mayfly 2020 will be held on Thursday, May 28th.

More information will be available soon. 

Mayfly welcomes members of our community, like you, to come together and support our mission of educating and inspiring children and adults to discover, understand, and respect their natural environment. Funds raised through this year's event helps LSNC serve the nearly 50,000 individuals from 11 Michigan counties who participate in LSNC programs - providing them with sensory-based experiences which evoke curiosity about - and respect for - our natural world. 

We hope you will join us at this wonderful event to celebrate the work of Leslie Science & Nature Center.

Also a special thank you to Recycle Ann Arbor who supports Mayfly as a Zero Waste event. In 2019, Mayfly was a Zero Waste success with 85% of the event waste being diverted from the landfill. We take the commitment of Zero Waste practices, resource management, and landfill diversion seriously. Zero Waste efforts sponsored by Washtenaw County’s Public Works Department.
