MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — On Sunday, January 12th at 2:00 pm, community members can spend time participating in nature activities and create healthy treats for wildlife at the Harris Nature Center, 3998 Van Atta Road in Meridian Township.

“Winter can be a challenging time for wildlife,” said Park Naturalist Allison Goodman. “Providing nutrient rich foods can help the birds and squirrels survive the colder months.”

Participants will be able to make ice cream cone feeders, edible wreaths and wildlife trail mix for the animals that visit their backyards. They will also enjoy a guided winter walk in search of wildlife activity.
