On April 9, Leslie Science & Nature Center (LSNC) was awarded a $15,000 Sustaining Ann Arbor Together (SA2T) grant from the City of Ann Arbor for an outdoor play space to support imaginative learning experiences that will engage and inspire young minds to respect and understand the natural world. The nature playscape, thanks to grant funding from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, Toyota Research & Development HQ and the City of Ann Arbor, is in its final design and initial construction phase, which will conclude in Fall 2020. The new playscape will be located in the wooded area behind the DTE Energy House and will be accessible to all and intended to be used year-round. At LSNC, children can play and learn by engaging with and manipulating natural materials and elements.
