July 12: Edible and Medicinal Natives of Lakeshore, 6:00-7:00 PM

While Lakeshore State Park might not look like a farm, a lot of our native plants are edible or medicinal! Join our Naturalist to learn more about these plants and their uses as we hike around the park. Our hike will begin at the north entrance near Discovery World, all ages and abilities are welcome!

July 20: Bird Watching Walk, 9:30-10:30 AM

Lakeshore State Park is home to over 70 species of native and migratory birds! Join us for a morning stroll to learn the basics of bird watching and see some of our feathered friends. Each bird hike is unique as migration causes our residents to change throughout the year. All ages and abilities are welcome, meet at the park’s north entrance near Discovery World. Binoculars recommended but not necessary.

July 21: Bee Hunt Hike, 3:30-4:30 PM

Now that summer is in full swing, you may have noticed there are a lot more bees outside! Did you know that for most species, only queen bumblebees hibernate and survive over the winter? In the spring, they emerge and lay eggs to hatch new worker bees, or female “non-queen” bees, while drones, or male bees, will not be born until closer to fall. Join our Naturalist to search for bumblebees, and other types of bees, and learn about their important role in pollination and supporting our prairies. Meet at the north entrance, near Discovery World, all ages and abilities welcome!

All events located at Lakeshore State Park meet north end by Discovery World, unless otherwise indicated
