Lost Lake's sledding hill really springs to life in the summer with numerous species of Michigan's most beautiful wildflowers (including wild geranium, violets, thimbleweed, ragwort and more!). This explosion in flora brings more than just sniffles to those with allergies, it also attracts countless bees, wasps, butterflies and more looking to taste a sample of nature's preferred sugar water. Join a park naturalist as we look at the importance of pollinators and wildflowers across the State while also learning a little about the types of flowers you can plant at home to attract your own beneficial flying friends. Inside the youngest naturalists that visit the park will have the opportunity to put together their own flower bouquets to take home!
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.
