ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience the natural environment of northern Michigan as you hike, canoe and explore the region’s hills, lakes and woods. A mycology expert leads forages for edible morel mushrooms and spring plants, offering information about forest and wetland ecology and correct identification of the elusive mushroom. Learn to prepare delicious recipes and how to dry and store mushrooms.

• Learn how, where and when to hunt the mysterious and treasured Northern Country Morels of Michigan.
• Encounter local wildlife and spectacular scenery as you canoe inland waters with an American Red Cross-certified lifeguard and canoe instructor.
• Spring wildflower hikes teach the use of field guides for identification, bringing northern Michigan’s flora and fauna within reach.
