Walk in the woods and watch the birds!

This fall, the kids and I have spent plenty of time walking in a local Ypsilanti Township wooded area. Maybe it's because they're both old enough to handle a good hike, maybe I just got inspired by the outdoors, the slow pace and fresh air were rejuvenating though and our time together in the woods, whether looking for birds, looking at the pond or hunting for fall mushrooms was wonderful. I really can't express enough what a great time we had!

We live in a great area too, there are many local parks and natural areas and better yet, there are plenty of organized hikes and walks for the family. It is supposed to be near 60-degrees this weekend, so why not check out the Bird Hike at the Hudson Mills Metro Park.

On Saturday, November 7 from 8:00 a.m - 9:00 a.m. bring your family, binoculars and a field guide to observe bird species seen in the park. Families will record the dates, locations, and trends of many bird species from year to year, exploring a variety of habitats throughout Hudson Mills.

There is a small fee of $2.00 per person in addition to the cost of entry into the Metropark. For more information and to register for the program call (734) 426-8211.
