$30 for Admission for Two to Petals & Vines Event ($60 Value)

From 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, May 11, Woldumar Nature Center hosts its "Petals & Vines" fundraiser on its premises, replete with ample beer, wine, and music to enliven the night. Guests receive a pint glass and four tokens upon entry—each good for a 6 oz. pour of beer or a 2 oz. pour of wine—to hydrate bites of a light dinner. Four microbreweries, including Darkhorse and Arcadia Ales, pour alongside Michigan wineries Burgdorf's and Sandhill Crane vineyards, while the Red Ledge Brewers perform a home-brewing demo and bands fill the air with live music.

Woldumar Nature Center

Woldumar Nature Center greets visitors with a coterie of trees, flowers, and grasses that populate 178 acres of diverse environs representing the region's larger ecosystem. Visitors explore the center's trails spanning 5 miles of lush scenery, which treats them to a prairie of wildflowers waving their vivid heads in the breeze, the Grand River flowing throughout 1.25 miles, and a hardwood forest that casts cool shade in the shadows of beech and maple trees. Deer peacefully forage in the apple orchard, and a butterfly garden hosts a feast for the gentle winged insects. The herb garden showcases common household herbs such as rosemary alongside oft-forgotten useful plants such as calendula, which pinky swears it goes well in potato soup. The nature center's knowledgeable staff lead educational programs year-round that fill brains with experiences in geocaching, exploring the Grand River, and watching live owl presentations.
