Message from the Marsh
Message From the Marsh is a cultural and historical performing arts series presented each Saturday evening in the summer beginning in June on the lawn stage adjacent to the Saginaw Bay Visitor Center inside the Bay City State Recreation Area.
Saturday, June 23, 7 p.m.: Sweetwater Seas, Lee Murdock
Each of the performers inspires an awareness and appreciation for the resources which make Michigan unique and lasts one hour. Following the performance, visitors are encouraged to take a twilight stroll by the bay on our paved trail and boardwalk. The opportunities for wildlife viewing are outstanding.
Message From the Marsh is co-sponsored by the DNR and the Friends of Bay City State Recreation Area, with financial support from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Northeast Michigan Arts Council.
Each performance begins at 7 p.m. Admission is free; however, a Recreation Passport is required for entry.
