Leslie Science and Nature Center – Ann Arbor, Michigan
The Leslie Science & Nature Center is a non-profit in Ann Arbor, MI that focuses on connections with nature, education, and efforts to protect the natural world through their many endeavors. Planning a visit to LSNC is made very exciting because of the variety of activities they have available. There’s even a critter house that features animals such as turtles, snakes, and frogs that are used to educate the public and inspire them to protect and care for creatures.
Another feature of LSNC that achieves this are the Raptor Enclosures. These house birds of prey that are no longer able to survive on their own in the wild. Through generous support the Leslie Science and Nature Center is able to care for these birds and keep them in comfortable environments where they can be viewed by the public and be wildlife ambassadors.
Hiking trails are in abundance as well and on the Black Pond Woods trail you can view plants and animals of the forest and immerse yourself in the beauty of the land. Education gardens and projects are available to observe and learn as well.
