2011 Michigan Bluebird Society Fall Picnic

Come To The Annual MBS Fall Picnic Sept. 18th!

The Michigan Bluebird Society will be holding its annual Fall Picnic on Sunday September 18th at the Sleepy Hollow State Park in Laingsburg, Michigan. They’ll be holding the picnic in the beach pavilion from 11 to about 3:00.  MBS will be providing the food and beverages.  It’s free for members, and a modest fee of $5 for non-members to cover the cost of lunch.   

We plan to have an array of bluebird nesting boxes showing the latest and greatest innovations in attracting more bluebirds.  In addition, the park's Outreach Coordinator Katie Robinson will give a short talk at 2:00 on the Birds of Sleepy Hollow State Park, followed by a nature hike on some of the trails.

Sleepy Hollow has over 2,600 acres of river, woods, trails, and 400 acre Lake Ovid – but fortunately no Headless Horsemen!  You can easily get to the park off M-127 north of Lansing by taking the Price Road exit to the east. 

Sleepy Hollow 7835 E. Price Road.  
Phone number: (517) 651-6217.
