    Spooky Woods – Even the scariest aspects of nature are ludicrously cool and we plan on heading out there to learn all about that which goes bump in the night. We’ll have owl mounts and owl pieces to admire and touch, a real tarantula, a build-a-bug station and more hauntingly entertaining activities inside. Outdoors we will flip over logs to glimpse the last of our creepy-crawlies before they seemingly vanish for the winter. We’ll even talk about how they survive!

     A Michigan Thanksgiving: With the approaching celebration of our favorite pudgy bird we figure it only fitting to celebrate our graceful friend with a day all about the turkey… But then we thought, why not pepper in some discussion of Native Americans while we’re at it? So join us for the best of both worlds as we honor the true tradition of Thanksgiving by learning about the indigenous people of Michigan while simultaneously putting together our own turkey crafts to take home. Outside we will perfect our turkey call on periodic tours of the woods and, of course, we will play some Ojibwa games.

    Everybody out in our woods is on the desperate hunt for as much food as they can to fatten their bodies up for a more comfortable winter. There's no reason we can't assist a few of our avian friends by providing them with a highly nutritious (and delectably fattening) meal, but first we will need a place to store it. Join a Dinosaur Hill naturalist as we put together our own bird feeders out of recycled materials and discuss the best foods to attract, and more importantly, sustain our feathered friends.

Each class will feature a short puppet tale introducing a topic, a hands-on craft and a game to assist with the puppet's needs and an outdoor walk guided by, you guessed it, puppets! These wacky adventures and hi-jinks are sure to be a monthly staple for your family. 

    $5 per child non-member

    $3 per child member

    (adults must attend and stay with child, but do not need to register for themselves)

    Adults are FREE, but...when registering online, the adult who signs in is automatically considered a paying guest.  So, if you are bringing one child with you, only register yourself (the adult) and the system will charge you correctly for $5/$3.  If you have more than one child, place the 3rd, 4th, 5th child as guests.

    ages 2-6 with parent

    This is the holiday gift we've been asking for ever since she retired - Miss Nancy will be back for a very special class befitting her cheerful personality:  The ultimate holiday pet rock extravaganza. We will be providing you with everything you need to decorate, adorn, bedazzle and amaze to transform a plain stone into a unique piece of art fit for a name and a museum. If you've never had the chance to attend one of Miss Nancy's four-foot classes, this might be the only opportunity you have to see why we believe she is irreplaceable.  

    Dec. 1st   10-11:30am 

    Non-Members are $6 per person with a family maximum of $25 

    Members are $5 per person with a family maximum of $20

    This is family program EVERYONE needs to register - both adults and children.

    So when you register, put your name and address (it knows you are 1 person), then when it asks "how many additional guests" you need to add the number of people coming with you.  We need a head count even if you choose the family maximum pricing. 

    Thanks!

     The Happy Holiday Hullabaloo – With the holidays right around the corner it’s time to ring in the new year and celebrate our families by taking everyone out to Lost Lake Nature Park for an afternoon of ornament making, carols, popcorn-stringing, refreshments and more! We will be taking hikes out into the woods to collect natural materials to turn into hanging ornaments inside, playing some festival holiday games, and even going on a scavenger hunt outside for missing prizes!
