“Just for Seniors” at the Geauga Park District

Free, exclusive programming means more fun for the “more experienced” Nature lover!

Fishing and birdwatching are featured fun during this spring’s Senior Days series, co-presented by Geauga Park District, the Geauga County Department on Aging and University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center.

April is prime birdwatching season! So on Thursday, April 27th, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at The Rookery, we’ll take a walk to share birding basics for all skill levels, then head into Great Blue Heron Lodge for a tasty pancake breakfast by our co-presenters.

Warmer weather also means outdoor fun by the water, so we’ll come together on Thursday, June 15th, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Beartown Lakes Reservation for more pancakes by our co-presenters, then a morning of angling and trying to catch “the big one” with Park District staff.

Both days are free, but registration is required at Geauga Park District or 440-286-9516. Activities will be partially wheelchair/stroller accessible, so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call.
