Field Trip Friday ~ Outdoor Discovery Center

Scrapbook Pages-269

Since Blanford Nature Center now charges to get in we have been spending more of our nature time at the Macatawa Greenway Outdoor Discovery Center. This is an amazing place for kids to explore and if you are ever in the area this is somewhere you HAVE to check out, my kids favorite place around us to visit! On this trip my sister, brother in law, and niece came with us to enjoy the beautiful place!! P1060911P1060912

Because they have a beautiful covered picnic area we always bring a picnic lunch and eat before or after our walk.   This is the favorite pond to explore the kids have found many frogs and turtles in this pond!

  1. What a fantastic place to spend the day – it looks so idyllic and the children can have so many adventures! A full day of fun at low cost – what more could you ask for. Thanks for linking up and sharing your outdoor fun with Country Kids.
