Mayfly: LSNC's Annual Fundraising Event

Join us for Mayfly, an evening to remember.

This year's Mayfly event will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 5:30 - 9:00 pm and includes dinner, drinks, live music, LSNC educational animal encounters, and more!

Wander our beautiful grounds under twinkling lights, while enjoying drinks and a catered meal set to live music. Our staff looks forward to the opportunity to mingle while providing up-close interactions with our live birds of prey and Critter House animals. The evening culminates with an engaging presentation with our talented educators.

Corporate Sponsors, Table Sponsors, and Honorary Hosts can join us now to receive special recognition on the upcoming print and digital invitations. Be sure to sponsor or buy your host ticket by March 28th so you don’t miss out on the invitation!

Did you know? In 2016, MayFly was piloted as a Zero Waste event with the help of Recycle Ann Arbor, Angel Food Catering, and Leslie Science Center staff. The event was a Zero Waste success with 97% of the event waste being diverted from the landfill. Only 1.8 lbs of trash was created for the entire event! We take the commitment of Zero Waste practices, resource management, and landfill diversion seriously, which is why MayFly will again be Zero Waste this year.
