Free Bird & Wildflower Programs

Sunday, May 6 would be a fabulous day to get into nature with the family, and Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation is offering two free programs that day to help you out.

Want to explore birds? Then head to West Lake Preserve (Dexter) for a Sunday Morning Bird Walk at 8:00 a.m. Get some early morning fresh air and commune with your feathered friends as they come out to play. This would be the perfect opportunity to introduce the kids to birding too, as beginning birders are welcome. Bring binoculars if you can and be ready to go for a walk.

If looking for wildflowers is your thing, then grab a guide book and head to Park Lyndon (Lydon Township) for a 2:00 p.m. hike into Embury Woods. Hunt for a variety of spring wild flowers and ferns that are growing throughout the area. Meet in the north parking lot at 2:00 carpool to the woods.

Both free events would be a great opportunity to get your tots, kids or teens into nature!
