The staghorn sumac is in bloom, and that means it’s time to make sumac kool-aid! To pick up a few fun recipes for local wild edibles and to learn more about Basin Harbor’s vast array of flora and fauna, head to the Nature Center and get the scoop! Special offerings today include a natural history stroll to Button Bay, where Abbey will point out some other edible plants and tell you about local lake history. Later, sign up for Painting with Nature and learn how to create your own paints with egg yolks and naturally occurring pigments. Try your hand at painting like the old masters!

For the active Basin Harborites in our crowd, don’t miss the Basin Harbor Triathlon this afternoon! Challenge yourself on this fun event that will have you swimming, biking, and running around BHC property. Grab a friend or family member for a team, or do all three legs on your own. Meet down at the waterfront at 1:45pm with a bike and helmet and a competitive spirit!

Choose from a whole menu of unbelievable massage options from our Blue Chair Day Spa massage therapists Kate and Patti. See the concierge to set up your treatments, with openings still available for today!

We’re in New England, so how about some lobster? Make your reservations for our Shore Dinner tonight on the North Dock, where you’ll be rewarded with a bounty of deliciousness from the land and sea. After catching the sunset, head to the Town Hall for a few thrilling rounds of Basin Harbor’s favorite game, BINGO! Who will take home the jackpot tonight?

To keep the night going, how about a nightcap at the Red Mill this evening? Sidle up to the bar and let your bartender and expert martini mixologist Costas whip up something chilled to perfection, just for you!
