Spring Into Science

April 3 - 7, 2017
11am - 3pm

Spend Spring Break engaged in an exciting week of activities that will help you learn how to live a greener Life. Subjects include water conservation, the benefits of recycling, and make and take recycled art projects.  Heavner Nature Connection/Heavner Canoe Rental  will take you on an imaginary canoe trip with your family and friends.  Or journey through a "Voyage in Time" as an explorer in the back country of the Great Lakes in the 170’s. Also on tap for the week is the Great Lakes Water Authority with tips on water conservation, The Oakland County Dirt Doctors who will teach visitors about the connection between vegetation, runoff and soil erosion in a fun-filled way. Also making a special appearance is the Great Lakes Fishery Commission with a tank of live “vampire” Sea Lampreys, and, on Friday, baby goats courtesy of the MSU Extension Tollgate Farm. Spring Into Science events are free with admission from 11am to 3pm April 3-7.
