A Walk by the Springs
August 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The numerous coldwater springs that meander through this property give this preserve its name. But more importantly, they provide critical habitat for plants and animals, including many endangered and threatened species such as the Hine’s emerald dragonfly and the dwarf lake iris. Three Springs Nature Preserve’s undeveloped stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline is home to uncommon birds such as bald eagles, and the streams that empty into North Bay are critical spawning areas for fish species, including the locally famous whitefish. Join us for a walk through the swampy forests and coastal marshes of Three Springs preserve, and learn why this critical habitat for land and aquatic wildlife is a part of one of the most highly ranked conservation corridors on the Great Lakes. This will be an approximately 1-mile walk over fairly level terrain. All kids attending will receive a free nature journal and outdoor activity kit at the completion of the walk.
