The Ford House’s Lake St. Clair Science Fair is Saturday, July 23rd from 12pm to 4pm and it’s the perfect summer field trip for families. At the fair, you will learn about geology, habitats, invasive species, water quality, ecology, and the many ways we use the lake for recreation and artistic inspiration. Activities include:

  • Storytime: All the Water in the World by George Ella Lyon and Katherine Tillotson
    Learn about the water cycle in this beautifully illustrated book.
  • Water Testing: Discover how to assess the health of our lake water through observations and hands-on testing.
  • Water Cycle Activities (all ages):  Learn about how clouds form and why rain falls, as we explore the water cycle with activities and experiments.
  • Build a boat: Create and decorate your own sailboat and have a friendly race with a pal!
  • Fishing Game: “Fish” for native species found right here in Ford Cove and take home your “catch”!
  • Watercolors: Be inspired by Lake St. Clair and create your own watercolor painting to take home.

 

All ages are welcome and tickets are available now for $5 per person for visitors over 3 and older.
