The Leslie Science & Nature Center: November Free Events

My kids and I have been over to the Leslie Science & Nature Center (1831 Traver Rd, Ann Arbor, MI) many times - For field trips, scout outings and just to stop in. We love the many great programs offered. As a mom on a budget though, I really appreciate the many free programs that are offered. Spend one day checking out the raptors, take a hike or even participate in the free campfire program. There is much to do and you won't be disappointed. Here are the free events happening in November!

Raptor Feeding Saturdays happen nearly every Saturday. In November you can stop in on November 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Kids will get to see how a bird's feet and beak work together to help our raptors eat. Volunteers will be on site feeding the birds and answering your questions – after watching the birds in action, you and your kids are likely to have quite a few!

On Sunday's (except November 30), the Critter House will be open from noon to 3:00 p.m.  Noon-3:00 p.m. Your kids will have the opportunity to observe the many frogs, turtles, snakes, rabbits, and other small critters as they hop, crawl, or slither around in their homes. Our animals include species native to Michigan as well many unique and exotic animals donated by our supporters. During Critter House open hours, our staff will answer your questions, hold interactive activities, and help the kids get up close and personal with some interesting and unusual animals! Take advantage of this great way for kids–and the whole family–to develop an appreciation for the incredible diversity of the natural world. The Critter House will be open November 2, 9, 16, & 23.

Both of these programs are free events appropriate for all ages. For more information be sure to contact the LSNC or visit them online!
