Multi-county bus trip to explore the invaluable Chagrin River
Earth Day falls on a Monday this year, so why not take the Saturday before it to celebrate?
Join Geauga Park District, Cleveland Metroparks, and Lake Metroparks for a bus ride along the natural feature we all share, the Chagrin River, with stops to highlight its natural and cultural features.
What: Sharing the Chagrin Bus Trip
When: Saturday, April 20 – 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Bass Lake Preserve
11445 Lakeview Road, Munson Township
The Chagrin River begins just north of Bass Lake Preserve, with several spring-fed tributaries emerging out of the sandstone bedrock that support the endangered native Ohio brook trout.
Upon boarding the bus, passengers will stop on Auburn Road for a river view in search of resident bald eagles; at Fowlers Mill to see the site of an old mill and visit the on-location gift shop; and at nearly 20 other sites for special riverside views and exploration experiences.
This bus trip is suitable for those school age and up; bring your own lunch, but snacks and water will be provided. Some stops will be wheelchair/stroller accessible, while others will not. Bus fare costs $15; register as soon as possible before April 18 by calling Lake Metroparks at 440-358-7275.
