Autumn Fest at Grass River Natural Area

Grass River Natural Area will be hosting Autumn Fest on Saturday October 20 from 11am to 1pm. The afternoon will be filled with activities for all ages including a trick-or-treat trail on our new section of boardwalk with “animal” encounters along the way, fall arts and crafts, and games. “This is a really great event for all ages,” says Kendra Luta, GRNA Communications and Outreach Coordinator. “It is such a blast to see so many people from the community come out to enjoy a beautiful fall afternoon of fun and games at the natural area. Everyone can be a kid at this event!”

Hikes on the trick-or-treat trail will leave every 20 minutes and there will be crafts and games inside and out of the nature center. This event is $5 per child. For more information contact or call 231-533-8314.
