Due to mandates from Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter, Oakland County Parks and Recreation is making operational changes that are in the best interest of the health and safety of the public and our employees. Red Oaks Nature Center and Wint Nature Center are closed until further notice, but the trails around both nature centers remain open. Thank you for your patience as we implement changes to protect our visitors and staff.
The nature centers offer family nature programs, exhibits including native live animals and classroom space. Both centers are linked to trail systems that invite visitors to explore the outdoors. Scout Badge Day programs are offered for Daisies, Brownies, Junior Girl Scouts, Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos. Wild Birthday Parties at Red Oaks and Wint Nature Centers focus on nature themes and are available for children, ages 4-12.
