Get out bike riding with the West River Trail Bike-Hike on Sunday, July 13. Join the journey from the Hudson Mills Activity Center to the DexterLibrary on the new West River Trail.

At Kids in the Creek on Saturday, August 2 from 1-2p kids will wander into the river to see some of the small animals that make the Huron River their home. The event is $3/child and you can pre-register at 734-426-8211.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
