Ligon Outdoor Center Videos
Welcome to Spring at Ligon (whether you are home or at school)!
At Ligon, we believe that the best learning is embedded in nature!
Join Ranger Jason as he once again brings Lessons from Ligon! This spring he is exploring different topics and activities related to nature focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Resource and material links are also provided below.
Teaching students remotely and wish they could have some hands-on supplies to go with these videos? The MiSTEM Network is supporting virtual learners (and teachers!) by providing supplies for each of these lessons. Click on the link below for more information!
Click here to apply for the MiSTEM Mini-Grant and receive supplies. Priority will be given to remote learners, but all are welcome to apply. These supplies were purchased under a grant awarded by the Michigan Department of Education.
Follow along with Ranger Jason as we build a periscope with only a few materials.
We would like to invite you to bring your students to Ligon to experience the beautiful winter wonderland that awaits you! Click here to make a reservation to visit Ligon.
For districts unable to come out to Ligon, we have implemented a "Snowshoe on Loan" program that allows your students to experience this exciting winter activity without leaving your school! For more information on how your school can participate with an on-site snowshoeing experience, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (810) 560-2187.
In the meantime, please enjoy the following video where Ranger Jason explains the basics of snowshoeing!
