Education, creativity and imagination create unique outdoor experiences at two nature centers, Red Oaks Nature Center in Madison Heights and Wint Nature Center in Clarkston.
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.
Programs are available by appointment year-round for a nominal fee to school and youth groups, preschoolers, homeschoolers, scouts, seniors, church organizations and more. StarLab, an inflatable planetarium, is a field trip option.
