Lost Lake Nature Park, Lost Lake Trail, Oakland Township, MI
Oakland Township Parks and Recreation and Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve have partnered to bring Oakland Township residents and others exciting new programs at Lost Lake Nature Park. Family, friends and neighbors are invited to explore everything this partnership has to offer at FREE fall open houses.
Open houses are FREE! Open houses are FUN! Open houses are for the whole family! During these social-distancing times we have adjusted our open houses to ensure safety for the public. For the Autumn all open houses will require pre-registration and we are limiting each time slot to 10 individuals.
When it comes to handling the cold there are three strategies the natural world can take. Animals can either hibernate and wait it out until readily available food reappears, they can resist and continue to scavenge what little is left while also hoarding their own life-saving supply, or they can migrate and move on to greener (literally) pastures. We would like to take this January to talk about birds and animals which vacation further south for the winter. Roughly 40% of the entire world's bird population are regular migrators. Just in the United States we have 3.5 billion birds taking the trip south. Come join us as we explore the routes they take, the stops along the way, and the physical adaptations needed for such a journey. Our youngest explorers will be taking home their own feathered bird wings to practice migrating around the house!
