The Foundation for Geauga Parks is dedicated to helping the community engage with nature, and demonstrates their mission in one down-to-earth fashion by hosting a monthly Explorers Series, leading hikes or activities that enable interested parties to learn more about many of the unique protected areas in Geauga County.
Please join us each month as we explore a different park or trail in Geauga County by boot, bike, paddle, or skis. Each experience provides a fun way to get outdoors, meet new people, and learn more about the natural, historic, and cultural beauty of our county.
The activities are physically easy and typically take about an hour to an hour and a half. Many are led by a park naturalist or other knowledgeable individual who shares their insights about the natural and historic aspects of the park.
Outings start at 10:30 a.m, typically at the park’s main parking lot. Any and all are encouraged to attend, including well-behaved four-legged friends (on leash.) Details will be provided each month on the Foundation’s Facebook page:
Activities take place rain, snow, or shine. Never miss a chance to meet up! Sign up for our mailing list to get updates and notifications about our upcoming explorations. http://www.foundationforgeaugaparks.org/pages/explorers-series
