Fireside Fun & Other Upcoming Events at Leslie Science & Nature Center
The Leslie Science & Nature Center (LSNC) holds a lot of great family events. We have always enjoyed the events, classes, and field trips that we have attended at LSNC.
This Sunday night (May 25), they will be holding Fireside Fun, an Old-Fashioned Campfire Circle from 6:30-8p. They’ll have the campfire going and will provide marshmallows for s’mores. Be sure to bring camp chairs/blanket and the rest of the fixings for s’mores. The event is free and there is no need to pre-register. The event is held once a month on Sunday nights. Other upcoming dates include: June 22, July 20, and August 10. The May event is a great event to attend since Monday is Memorial Day and the kids won’t have to get up early for school (or camp) the next day.
On Saturday, June 21 they will host the Monarch Butterfly Conservation Kickoff from 1-3p. The event is $10/person or $38/family. They will be raising Monarch Caterpillars leading up to the Monarch Butterfly Migration Festival in September when tagged butterflies will be released. They will be building a Monarch Waystation for LSNC and showing you how to create one at home. Attendees will be provided with a milkweed plant or seeds to start their own Monarch Waystation. Online Registration is available.
The Great American Backyard Campout is on Saturday, June 28 beginning at 4p through Sunday, June 29 at 10a. The event is $50/family campsite. The event includes campfires, night hikes, demonstrations, dinner and breakfast as well as various activities. Online Registration is available.
My daughter also loved the camp that she attended at LSNC. Be sure to check out their summer camp offerings. You can find information on this and other camps in the Ann Arbor with Kids Summer Camp Guide sponsored by University of Michigan Museum of Natural History, My Urban Toddler, Precious Sprouts of Ann Arbor, and Ann Arbor Rec & Ed.
