Lost Lake Open House FREE - Lots of Lakes

  • 23 Jun 2019
  • 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Lost Lake Nature Park, 846 Lost Lake Trail, Oakland Township, Michigan


Registration is closed

With over 11,000 lakes scattered across our mitten, we are people who know how to have a great time enjoying a slightly muddy splash and we're no different here at Lost Lake. Our 8 acre lake is home to some of Michigan's most popular fish, frogs and waterfowl and we occasionally like to sample the water with nets to record just how populations are faring. Join us as we equip skimming nets and seek out some of our kettle lake's most interesting inhabitants (including our beautiful Sand Hill cranes)! We will even take samples of what we find into the nature center to view beneath microscopes and stereoscopes. Our youngest naturalists will even be able to take home their very own pond craft! 

Open houses are FREE!  Open houses are FUN! Open houses are for the whole family! The nature center will be open for four hours. You are welcome to drop by any time during those hours. You will have a chance to explore this amazing park, check out the nature center, participate in crafts, games and other ongoing activities... including FREE KAYAKING! A new theme will be featured each month so come to one or come to all! You are also welcome to make an afternoon of it and bring along a picnic to enjoy with a scenic view of the huge pine trees and beautifully secluded Lost Lake.
