Each year, the Michigan Nature Association holds its Annual Fall Recognition Dinner to honor conservation heroes and outstanding volunteers who help MNA achieve continued success. This year’s Fall Recognition Dinner will be held on Friday, November 15 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing, MI.

We are honored to be joined by guest speaker, Nick Haddad a conservation biologist, professor at Michigan State University, and author of “The Last Butterflies: A Scientist’s Quest to Save a Rare and Vanishing Creature,” which tells the story of six rare butterflies, the challenges they face, and the future of butterfly conservation.

The evening will also consist of a Silent Auction, with the proceeds going toward MNA’s Environmental Education Fund, which provides nature education for children and adults. A catalog of the Silent Auction offerings will be available beforehand, so be sure to check the event page for more information. Popular auction items will return, including:

  • a Shipwreck tour courtesy of Alpena Shipwreck Tours
  • a week-long getaway in Northern Michigan
  • a cruise on the Detroit River Princess

 as well as a few new surprises!

The dinner is open to all – tickets are $30. Visit the event page for more information, and consider joining us on Friday, November 15th as we recognize the extraordinary work of the Michigan Nature Association, celebrate conservation heroes, and hear the very latest on rare butterfly conservation.
