Harvest Social 2011 - Great Turn Out!

The Michigan Wildlife Conservancy would like to thank all of you who came out to our Fall Harvest Social of 2011 on Saturday, October 8.  Between 200 and 250 Mid-Michigan residents attended. 
The event which was free to the public featured special presentations by Mr. Wayne Jackson, a Native American Elder, who took the crowd on a historical journey of the Anasazi and Hopewell cultures; and docents from Lansing’s Potter Park Zoo who brought a menagerie of animals and animal skins to help teach young people about endangered species and some of the animals that live around us.
Harvest Social guests also enjoyed participating in an Apple Bob, Nature Scavenger Hunt, carving a duck head, making a pine-cone bird feeder, horse-drawn wagon rides (P.J.'s Percherons), bog tours, and habitat hikes.  Everyone had a chance to browse the Conservancy’s Dancing Crane Gift Shop for unique wildlife-and-garden-themed gifts and collectables.
Displays from Risks Apiary and the Bath Farmers Market rounded out the activities.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make the Fall Harvest Social perfect!
