Venture out to Chippewa Nature Center for the monthly Families in Nature program series! Join CNC’s naturalists for this outdoor program to explore the wonders of Michigan’s seasons.

The evergreen trees stand out in the woods now that the deciduous leaves have all fallen. Can you find the bundles of pine needles in groups of two and five? Look for pine cones, compare their shapes and sizes and search for the seeds hiding inside.  Learn the difference between spruces and firs and how they differ from pines. Dress for the weather for this outdoor hike. 

FREE | All Ages, under 18 w/adult
