Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from our 2017 Gala and Silent Auction, our board of directors and staff have decided to forgo our benefit concert this year and focus our efforts on one major fundraising event: the 2018 Gala and Silent Auction. The Gala will take place on Tuesday, August 28th in the Great Ballroom at Shanty Creek Resorts. The evening will include live jazz performed by Steve Stargardt and Laurie Sears, delicious food from Shanty Creek, Short’s Brewing Company beverages, and a silent auction with items such as outdoor equipment, art from local artisans, live shows and much, much more. Tickets are $50 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets visit grassriver.org.
Grass River Natural Area is a 1,492 acre nature preserve surrounding the Grass River, located in the heart of Antrim County. Along with the beautiful views of Grass River, we also offer seven miles of well-maintained trails including 1.5 miles of boardwalk floating above northern fen and cedar wetlands. With all of these natural features, Grass River Natural Area offers visitors an outdoor, living laboratory to explore and learn. The Grass River Center is open year-round, offering a comfortable learning environment for public programming, school field trips, camps, and more.
