Spring Campfire Programs for the Family: Free Events

There are a couple fun campfire programs I wanted to share with readers. The nice weather makes being outside special, especially at night. My family enjoys listening to the birds, frog choruses and nature awakening. Wouldn't you like to breath the fresh spring air too?

The first event, “Winter or Spring?” is a night hike and campfire program with Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation. On Saturday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Park Lyndon (North Lot - 18801 N Territorial Rd, Chelsea, MI 48118), Faye Stoner will guide families on a brief hike the trail to the wetlands and back. Families will talk about seasonal changes, listen for night sounds, learn about frogs and owls and other night animals, and look for early spring stars! At the conclusion of the hike, enjoy light snacks and hot drinks around the fire.

The following weekend, families can join in on "Fireside Fun" at the Leslie Science & Nature Center (1831 Traver Road Ann Arbor, Michigan 48105). The old-fashioned campfire circle is set up on Sunday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. Families are sure to be reminded that there's nothing more relaxing as sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. Families will need to bring camp chairs, and s'mores fixings - the LSNC staff will provide a blazing outdoor campfire and plenty of marshmallows.

Both of these programs are free events and perfect for the entire family.
