  1. Just wondering if there are any updates on the Macro Photography workshop. I have not received any information since I have registered, so I am assuming it is still on.

    • yes, but you must do so before 9 a.m. on September 19. after that, the race day registration fee goes into effect, which will make it $30 per person.

      thanks so much for asking, hope to see you there!

  4. Hello! I have a nearly 3 year old and we are interested in attending your program on the 14th. Do we need to register to attend?

    • Yes, Brooke, please register by calling 517-546-0249. Our Welcome Center is open 9 a – 3p daily and can take your reservation by phone.

  5. Hello I wanted to bring my girls to the Ground Hog Celebration and just am seeing you had to register. I called and the office is closed… would it be possible to attend? Thank you! :)

    • Thanks for asking, Laura! it is now available for download when you scroll down to the bottom of the page.

      I am so glad you asked, because when I updated it yesterday, I neglected to click the UPDATE button!!! Thank goodness for autosave!

    • Tyara, we have two 500′ zip lines and will be adding more late this summer. All training and safety equipment is provided. I believe that the only restrictions are that you must be over 5 years old and under 250 pounds. Please call 517-546-0249 for dates and reservations. April

    • our high ropes course could be a great exercise for a couple. There are obstacles suspended about 30′ off the ground that traverse from tree-to-tree. It is TOTALLY safe, but challenging and –for me, anyway–a pretty big thrill.

      Be sure to call 517-546-0249 to make your reservation!
