Along with nature trails and native plants, this park includes a gazebo-style Teaching Station where kids can listen and learn.

It's located at Mary McCann Park, in York Township between Ann Arbor and Milan, MI.

Here is a photo of the Teaching Station, sans roof and bench boards. The octagonal base is roughly 21 feet across. Three ranks of tri-fold benches will face the open area. The two curving, 5' x 30' beds lie downslope to right and left at a distance of about 30 feet from the teaching station's perimeter
