Metroparks Hosting Mother’s Day Weekend Activities

DETROIT (WWJ) – If you’re tired of celebrating Mother’s Day with a breakfast in bed or picking up a bouquet of flowers, Michigan’s Metroparks may have a solution for you.

This Mother’s Day weekend, local metroparks are offering a unique way to treat mom to a special day by getting the entire family outdoors. Nearly a dozen special programs will be taking place across the metro Detroit area. Among them:

“Moms and Families Campfire Program,” Saturday May 12th at 7:30 p.m. This pre-Mother’s Day celebration features a campfire for songs, stories and marshmallow roasting. Admission is $3 per person and free for moms. Preregistration is required. To register, call (586) 781-9113.

“Mother’s Day Wildflower Hike,” Sunday May 13th at 1 p.m. This Mother’s Day activity allows families to join an interpreter for a guided hike to discover spring wildflowers. Admission is $3 per person and free for moms. To register, call (734) 426-8211.

“Mother’s Day Walk-A-Mom,” Sunday May 13th 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kids of all ages who walk the trail of their choice with their mom will be awarded an official Walk-A-Mom certificate. Also, mom will get a garden flower to plant at home. The program is free. For more info, call (586) 781-9113.

With spring weather on its way, the metroparks also provide an opportunity for families to visit baby animals at the Farms Center in Kensington Metroparks or to have a picnic and take a walk.
