The seven natural sites on the tour will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 18. Participants can download a passport and explore the sites along with scientists and naturalists.

The Celebration at Forest Beach Migratory Preserve, from 11 a.m. to 5:30 pm., will feature food, music, wildlife programs, exhibits and a silent auction. Tour-goers can also trade in their passports for free raffle tickets.

The natural sites on this year’s tour are Donges Bay Gorge Nature Preserve; Virmond Park; Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve; Lake Michigan at South Beach Park; Lake Michigan from Upper Lake Park; Cedar Grove WPA on the Migratory Flyway; and Forest Beach Migratory Preserve. Information will also be provided about the latest lake-related research.
