This beautiful photo of the Nature Education Center below, captured by Judge Ed Post, is simply too beautiful to keep to ourselves! Now is a great time to visit the center located within Hemlock Crossing Park at 8115 West Olive Road in West Olive. On display now through September 17 is a collection of Ottawa County Park-inspired art from Ottawa Shores Plein Air. (They are impressive and some are for sale.) Bring the entire family! After appreciating the artwork, your children will enjoy playing in the wildlife den or exploring the trails.
