HOFFMASTER STATE PARK ANNOUNCES TRILLIUM FESTIVAL|
LANSING--Michigan natural resource officials today announced
the schedule for the annual Trillium Festival, May 4 and 5,
at Muskegon's Hoffmaster State Park.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to enjoy
Michigan's natural beauty," said park manager Elizabeth
Tillman. "The festival is an entertaining and educational
event celebrating spring and Michigan's wildflowers."
April and May are prime blooming season for the assorted
wildflowers which blanket Hoffmaster Park's forest floors
and wooded stream banks, providing a beautiful backdrop for
educational programs. Programs throughout the two-day
festival help visitors learn more about all the natural
features of the woods and sand dune communities so prevalent
in P.J. Hoffmaster State Park. This event draws visitors
from across the state each year.
The Festival is free, but a Motor Vehicle Permit is required
for entry into any state park or recreation area for $4
daily, or $20 annually.
