Spring Treasure Hunt

May 03, 2014
4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Nan Weston Nature Preserve at Sharon Hollow, Grass Lake, Michigan


Join scientists and restoration ecologists from The Nature Conservancy for a FREE guided field trip through our beautiful Nan Weston Nature Preserve at Sharon Hollow. Perfect for all ages, this event will have you hiking through a forest floor carpeted with trillium while looking under logs for slithering salamanders along the walk to the River Raisin.

Spring is finally here, and what better way to enjoy the season than to get outdoors with the young ones? Discover together the woodlands of The Nature Conservancy’s Nan Weston Nature Preserve for the Conservancy’s spring treasure hunt on May 3rd from 4 to 6 pm. This beautiful preserve is located at Sharon Hollow south of Chelsea, Michigan where our scientists will guide you on a beautiful sightseeing tour through the forest.

The Nan Weston Preserve is made up of the floodplain forests, pocket wetlands, and streams – all providing habitat to a teaming group of wildlife and beautiful foliage. Visitors may see a variety of plants and animals such as toads, frogs, or turtles on their journey as they walk a trail system including a boardwalk winding though the preserve.

Little ones will delight in new-found treasures of the woodlands as they hunt for leaping, crawling, and colorful creatures in nature. Adults will appreciate the majesty of the preserve, but also find joy and amusement in watching their young explorers open up to a new outdoor world. Space is limited, so please reserve your spot by calling (517) 316-2285. You can also register online.
