Winter birds are something to see in Meridian Township

One drive through Meridian Township and it is not hard to notice the barrier of woods and the character of the trees that surround the area. During the winter, this wooded township hosts many events to the families of Okemos and Haslett. Each winter weekend through the months of January and February, they host “Family Winter Fun Weekends.” This is a time when lots of families come out to attend each event and stay connected in their township and roots of Michigan. With families of all ages to experience this day with the outdoors of winter birds around, even people from outside the community of Meridian came to listen in on the bird calling. Maci Laurel Robinson, 21, of East Lansing took the children she nannies for; Gwen, Sophia and Carson to this event as well.
