Fernwood is a special place where people, plants, and nature come together. Beautiful gardens are tucked into the landscape of natural and cultivated areas. Species of endangered and threatened Michigan plants and animals are protected in the nature preserve that features several unique natural communities. Miles of trails await, and indoors, visitors may enjoy an art gallery, fern conservatory, nature center, library, cafe, and gift shop. Fernwood offers many possibilities for learning and enrichment, including classes, workshops, lectures, concerts, trips, exhibits, and special events. Fernwood is a favorite spot for weddings and corporate retreats.
