Curator Chat: River Recreating and Lakeside Leisure
11 a.m.–12 p.m.

Presented by Senior Curator, Joel Stone. Coffee, tea and pastries will be served during the presentation. Historically, Detroiters have found many ways to enjoy our regional waterways. It could be as simple as watching boats go by while picnicking on Belle Isle, or more active fun such as canoeing, swimming or sailing. This presentation will examine the myriad ways we embrace this wonderful resource.

Seniors enjoy 10% off all purchases in the gift shop.
