I have to say that the Seven Ponds Nature and Interpretive Center is a super place to bring kids. Located north of Detroit in Metamora, Michigan the site is well off the beaten path and takes a while to get to. This makes sense though once having arrived you realize you are literally in the middle of ‘nowhere’ and away from cities and large towns alike. The trails are extensive enough where you can walk them all in a couple of hours – unless you stopped like we did and looked at everything. Dead logs with termites, flying colorful dragonflies, fish in the swampy waters.
