Affectionately known as "Ann Arbor's Backyard," the Leslie Science & Nature Center is a historic natural space with trails, raptor enclosures, a Critter House & public programs for all. From, "From 1923 through 1976, Dr. Eugene and Emily Leslie lived in a home surrounded by fields, prairie, and woods that had views of the City of Ann Arbor ... The Leslies wanted to preserve their land for children and decided to deed their property to the City of Ann Arbor with a request that it be used for children ... Upon their death, the land and buildings were passed on to all of the citizens — especially the children — of Ann Arbor. With this gift, the City established Leslie Science Center in order to provide children with an opportunity to explore the rich natural resources around them. Today, the Leslie legacy is extended through the generous gifts of caring individuals who share this vision."
