Attention Woldumar Members!

All current members are invited and encouraged to attend our annual members' meeting. An optional guided "Owl Prowl" on the trails will follow.

Date: 12/12/18
Time: 6:30-7:45pm
Location: RE Olds Anderson Rotary Barn at Woldumar Nature Center 5739 Old Lansing Rd Lansing MI 48917

Refreshments will be offered at 6:30 with music by Sylvia Colles. Presentations by the staff, board of directors, and special guests will celebrate the organization's accomplishments in 2018. Election of board members will conclude the meeting.

After the meeting, members can join Program Director Dan Auer on the trails in an attempt to attract and interact with Woldumar's resident wild owls. Return to the barn to enjoy a s'more by the campfire (although no one will judge if you skip the hike and just go for the s'more!).
