Big Tree Hunt Contest – Michigan
Jun 3 all-day
Big Tree Hunt Contest - Michigan

ReLeaf Michigan, a non-profit tree planting and education organization, is celebrating Michigan trees with its 14th Michigan Big Tree Hunt Contest. This free contest runs now through September 3, 2019 and is open to participants of all ages.

Join Michiganders across all 83 counties to hunt for the largest trees in the state. Big trees can be found anywhere: a backyard, a local park, or a hiking trail. When the contest closes certificates and prizes will be awarded for the largest tree submitted from each Michigan County, the largest tree found by a youth hunter (15 and younger) and adult hunter (16 and older), the largest Eastern White Pine found in the state and for potential state champion trees. To enter your big tree, visit www.bigtreehunt.com for an online entry form or for information on where to find a paper entry form.

ReLeaf Michigan started the Michigan Big Tree Hunt in 1993 to celebrate our state’s beauty and gather information about Michigan’s biggest trees. Contest entries provide potential state champion trees to Michigan’s Big Tree Registry as well as the National Register of Big Trees. Since Michigan champion trees die or may be removed, contest entries are a wonderful opportunity for all age groups to help track these vital, historical, living landmarks.

More contest details available online at www.bigtreehunt.com. If you have a question not answered on the website, email ledwards@ReLeafMichigan.org or call (800) 642-7353.

ReLeaf Michigan’s Big Tree Hunt contest is sponsored by the Arboriculture Society of Michigan, Consumers Energy Foundation, the DTE Energy Foundation, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources – Urban and Community Forestry Program and supported in partnership by the Huron-Clinton Metroparks and the Michigan Botanical Club.

Father’s Day Fungi Hike – Ann Arbor
Jun 16 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

LESLIE SCIENCE & NATURE CENTER PRESENTS
Father’s Day Fungi Hike
Sunday, June 16 4-5:30 PM

Celebrate the fun father figures in your life by traversing the woods on a fungi hike! Through a short presentation and a guided walk in the woods, there’s not “mush-room” for anything but adventure in this program!

This program will take place on Sunday, June 16th from 4-5:30 PM starting with a fungi ID presentation in the DTE Energy House. This presentation will focus on species we find in Black Pond Woods.
From there, visitors will set off in small groups into the woods, led by LSNC staff, in which folks will use their new knowledge to search for various fungi!

“This is our very first public fungi hike, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Not only does it allow us to explore the mysterious kingdom of fungi, but it lets both visitors and staff discover new and exciting organisms right here in our woods. Even their names should get people excited to practice their new skills: from Lion’s Mane to Chicken of the Woods, to the infamous Morels of Michigan, we are anxious and enthusiastic to discover the fungus among-us! – Lannis Smith, LSNC Program Manager

Participants will learn how to classify mushrooms, the ecological role they play at LSNC, and ways to tell when one is edible, or which are easy to grow in your own garden or woods. Resources for how to discover more about mushrooms and fungi will also be given throughout the program. Bring a magnifying glass, a nature journal, and dress for the weather. We’ll provide lemonade, field guides, and plenty of mushroom jokes! Make an afternoon out of your trip by bringing a picnic dinner to enjoy after the hike, and staying for our free, Fireside Fun gathering starting at 6:30pm!

Father’s Day Fungi is designed to appeal to all ages. Please join us Sunday, June 16 from 4-5:30 PM. $5 per person, fathers and father figures are free! Program takes place at Leslie Science & Nature Center, 1831 Traver Rd, Ann Arbor, MI, 48105. Pre-registration is STRONGLY SUGGESTED as this type of event typically sell out. Register online at: https://www.lesliesnc.org/

Lavender Harvest Festival – Milan
Jul 13 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Lavender Harvest Festival - Milan

Join us for our 2nd annual “Lavender Harvest Festival” as we celebrate our eye-popping and scent-sational harvest of different lavenders in purple, white and blue! Stroll through thousands of blooming + pungent lavenders spread over 3 acres and enjoy a special “U-Pick Lavender” area. There will be LIVE music, an “Artisans’ Marketplace, lavender-inspired food + drink and more fun activities! Bring along the entire family for a scent-sational mid-summer’s day!

We have listened carefully to guest feedback and this year’s improvements include: expedited parking and admission, online ticket sales to reduce waiting times, online-only “will-call” for our farm products with online ticket purchase, 2 additional acres for parking (for a total of 8 acres; please carpool if possible!), a complete petting farm with 2 riding ponies for the children, 3x the vendors (50+), more restrooms, many more food options, more shaded seating for guests, more lavender wreath-making and growing workshops and many more lavender products for your home and body! Additionally, we will be “grilling with lavender”; here you can taste what lavender has to offer us in hamburgers, hot dogs and other foods grilled over charcoal that is smoked with lavender!

We GROW over 15 varieties of lavender and you will be able to purchase from several top-performing varieties in purple and white. We offer a collection of products for skin care, hair care, children and pets all the way to lavender lemonade, lavender jams and blueberry lavender scones! All cosmetics are crafted in our cosmetics lab on-site. Our store will be adjacent to the entrance of the festival. You may even purchase products before the festival and skip the lines in our “WILL-CALL” tent, also adjacent to the entrance! Don’t go home without taking something LAVENDER with you!

Our “Artisans’ Marketplace” is where you will find LIVE music with more than 50 vendors offering locally-made products. Vendors will be offering painted art, vintage finds, rusty treasures, home + garden decor, chic clothing, handmade jewelry, signs, pet products, candles, baked goods, gourmet food, face painting, henna body art and much more! No two vendors will be alike! More than 90% of vendors make their own products. The intent is for this shopping experience to be as unique and diverse as possible. Be on the lookout for vendors incorporating lavender into their products and food!

Children LOVE lavender, but they also love PONIES! A complete petting + feeding farm with large and small animals will be present…. including 2 riding ponies! Knowledgeable staff will be there to answer questions and assist children and adults of the ins and outs of the PETTING FARM!

For those looking to cut their own lavender, look for the “U-CUT” banner, which will mark the U-CUT LAVENDER area. All cutting will take place within that area. You must purchase a band, priced at $12, in order to cut a bundle of lavender. You can fit 150-200 stems in one bundle! At the beginning of each row of lavender will be a placard denoting the variety of lavender in that row, along with a short description of that variety. There will be no delay on cutting in the U-CUT area.

Our farm is located just 15 minutes south of Ann Arbor, 30 minutes north of Toledo and 45 minutes west of Detroit. This makes the festival a short drive away from all those residing in Southeast Michigan and Northern Ohio.

A schedule of workshops for growing with lavender, cooking with lavender and lavender wreath-making will be released closer to the festival date.

Senior Citizens Price is $4 (Gate only, 65 yrs +)

Online Ticket Price is $4.99 (plus a WILL CALL option to avoid
