The Nature Center at Lake St. Clair Metropark features displays on wetlands, waterfowl, live animals and the historical use of the area by the French Voyageurs. Park interpreters host public school, private school and home school field trips, school outreach (we come to you!), Voyageur canoe programs, nature walks, special events, and many other interpretive programs for the general public. A portion of Lake St. Clair Metropark is set aside for the study and enjoyment of nature. Several miles of interpreter or self-guided nature trails teeming with wildlife traverse a freshwater marsh, meadows and woods. The Nature Center and outdoor study area are ideally suited for educators and students to explore while fulfilling their GLCE requirements. The Lake St. Clair Nature Center programs meet the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations .
Trail maps and information on services provided by the park interpreters are available at the Nature Center and the Park Office. Call (586) 463-4581 for information and registration.
