Relieve Stress with the Great Outdoors


Have you ever noticed that when we change our focus to animals and nature we relax? Well, people with memory loss experience it too! Fortunately, we live in a beautiful state with many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. There are some of the most enjoyable state parks within thirty minutes of the Detroit metro area. You can take a leisurely ride, walk, hike, learn at the nature center, volunteer, or just sit and enjoy the view.
Here are some suggestions:
Kensington Metro Park is a scenic 4,486 acre recreational facility that provides year-round fun for all ages.
Activities to participate in: Kensington Critters (live displays of various snakes, turtles and fish), Farmer for a Day (including seeing an active beehive), Astronomy on the Beach, seasonal birding programs (now is a great time to see migratory birds), sell-guided nature hikes, bike rides, and lots more!

For more information, visit their website at or call 810-227-8917. For those who aren’t lucky enough to live near Kensington, try searching your state’s website to find parks close to you and the programs they offer.

Happy Fall!
