Moosewood Nature Center To Hold Harvest Festival


The Moosewood Nature Center desires to indicate residents among the issues nature has to supply this weekend.

The heart has a mission of celebrating nature within the Upper Peninsula by training and motion.

It’s harvest pageant has the extra good thing about bringing the group collectively in pure settings.

“We’re doing our Fall Festival this year for a couple of reasons. We’re not doing our haunted bog this year, which is our big fundraiser, but it’s also a chance to get a lot of people in to visit us that haven’t been here,” stated Board Member Scot Stewart. “We thought we would do a big two-day event and we would have a number of things going on to attract people from a whole wide range of interests. We have six events planned for the two days this Saturday and Sunday.”

Festival actions embrace the fan favourite dino dig, an autumn tree stroll, a hunt for salamanders, frogs and different swamp creatures and a pumpkin carving and portray station.

One occasion that was once held each month was a chicken stroll, which can return this weekend.

“We want to get people out here that haven’t been out here before or people that have been here before or maybe people have missed out on a previous event, that hope to attend. There used to be bird walks out here with another organization every month and Presque Isle is one of the best places to go birding and maybe people never being here before will let them walk around and see something that haven’t before,” Stewart stated. “We have phenomenal birding here throughout the whole year. At Moosewood, we never know what we are going to have out here. We have a flock of turkeys coming out here now and the Peregrine Falcons are cruising out here with the Merlins. Inside, we have some great new exhibits that people will also get a chance to see.”

Stewart stated the middle is anticipating round 100 folks on the occasion.

So in the event you want one thing to do that weekend, head on all the way down to the Moosewood Nature Center and benefit from the Autumn air.
