Public Hunts

All of the Mid-Michigan Ed. Field experiences and Classes led by Sister Marie Kopin have been canceled for May and June 2020. Please keep checking this website for further updates on any other cancellations on published hunts and classes whether “public” or “members only” as this year progresses. If in doubt, contact the hunt leaders or teachers. We are carefully considering the status of the Covid19 pandemic and our Governor’s guide-lines with coordinating agencies. This now includes sites where excessive rain has been a problem, both on-site, and/or on roads destroyed. This is certainly a year to remember. “Stay Save and get some outdoor exercise”
