The great escape this week will have you out exploring nature and getting back in touch with your senses at the Leslie Science and Nature Center in Ann Arbor.
You might ask yourself if winter is a good time to find out what the Leslie Science and Nature Center has to offer, but really, it's the perfect time. You can explore the trails and look for animal tracks along the way and the exercise and the fresh air can revitalize your senses.
Many of us here in Michigan keep ourselves pretty cooped up during the winter months, and by the time March rolls around, many of us can hardly stand it anymore. This escape is a great way to give being outdoors a jump start.
According to the center’s website, “Raccoons forage for food behind the public gardens near the parking lot, white tail deer tracks weave their way through Black Pond Woods and fox squirrels are busy finding their hidden caches.” It also encourages guests to visit to look for a furry friend, as the grounds and trails are open seven days a week during daylight hours.
The Leslie Science and Nature Center has a lot more than trails to offer and you can read more about it online at lesliesnc.org. It is located at 1831 Traver Road and the phone number is 734-997-1553.
