Program Descriptions

Into the Night
Join Ranger Rachael to explore White Lake after sunset. We will tap into our senses and discover how animals thrive at night.

Discovery Station
Ever felt a fox’s fur? Seen a porcupine skull? Stop by the discovery station to check out some animal facts and tracks, and even test your tree identification skills. If you have time, then make a pine cone creature or a leaf rubbing to take home with you!

Lake Dwellers
Come explore White Lake’s sandy shores and streams as we catch aquatic creatures with nets, jars, and our bare hands!

Afterloon Crafts
Have you heard White Lake’s majestic call of the loon? Or perhaps a “loony laugh” while walking the trail? Gather ‘round to learn more about these mysterious creatures, and then make your very own loon!

Stargazing
On a clear night we will find stars, constellations, and planets in the beautiful night sky. If it’s too cloudy for stars, we will go “Into the Night”. See the program description above.

White Lake Mysteries
Whether this is your first visit to White Lake or your 50th, there is always more to learn more about this unique park! Take a stroll around the lake and enjoy hearing about White Lake’s plants, animals, and history.
