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.
Even though there is no furnace in a squirrel drey the animal is still cozy and bundled. But how can this be? Join us as we take a look at the fascinating world of animal body-coverings. We will look up close and personal at local and exotic animal furs and perform experiments to see how resistant to cold they are before transitioning to scales and seeing just how poorly they keep an animal warm. We will even be taking a peek at some body-coverings of a few creatures from the ocean! Our youngest explorers will be putting together their own furry animal craft to take home to ensure their cuddling at home remains cozy and warm. We will have snow-shoes available for participants should the weather cooperate
