Family and Adult Programs

Group Canoe Paddle

Just because summer is over, doesn't mean paddling season is. Autumn is a perfect time to get out onto flat water and take in the yellows, reds and oranges of the trees before they fade into winter. Spend an afternoon along the Saugatuck River in search of egrets, osprey, ducks, shore birds and much more. Canoes and personal flotation devices (required by all participants) are included. Spaces are limited and advanced registration is strongly recommended, so register early!!

Turkey Walk and Trot with Jo Debone

All Ages

When: Saturday, November 25 from 2:30pm

Where: Earthplace

Cost: FREE to Members; Price of admission for non-members

 

Bundle up and bring a camera as we go in search of turkeys along the trails with our annual Turkey Walk and Trot. Local expert Joe Debone will present a brief history of turkeys prior to the walk - including discussion of their diet, life span and characteristics. To further familiarize ourselves with this great animal, we’ll take a look at some turkey feathers, tails, feet and a beak and listen to a wild turkey call.
