A celebration honoring those who have protected Asylum Lake Preserve
The Asylum Lake Preservation Association (ALPA) invites you to join local experts who will be giving tours of the Preserve. Learn about its plants, birds, history, and the research that is going on there. Participate in the brief dedication of a plaque honoring Renay and Monty Piercey, pioneers in ALPA's efforts to make the land surrounding Asylum Lake truly a "Preserve." Learn from displays from many local organizations and an annual ALPA membership meeting. Gather to celebrate our environment and the people who have helped preserve and appreciate it.

Our Annual Art Walk at Wau-Ke-Na, William Erby Smith Preserve, has become a true tradition, so help us celebrate our 6th annual event. We hope to offer something extra and new this year (check here later this season as details become available).
The Plein Air Artists of West Michigan (PAAWM) will have 20 or more artists on site again this year. Several of West Michigan’s finest galleries will be in the Art Barn. Self-guided tours will feature signage to help you identify native flora and fauna. Ice cream and water will be for sale, and free wagon rides will be available throughout the day. Purchase our 2014 Painted Sanctuary calendar and be entered to win an original painting to be raffled off at 4 p.m.! The Art Walk will be held rain or shine (but not lightning and thunder).
Friday, December 6, 5 to 8 p.m.
