With springtime just around the bend (March 20!), Geauga Park District is excited to announce its spring CONNECT themes, designed to help you find your connection to the Great Outdoors!
This April, come Connect with Conservation in honor of Earth Day on April 22. Designated programs this month will inspire you to care for Mother Earth all year long, from Landscaping with Native Plants to our Earth Day Dump Clean-up at Observatory Park to our special Earth Day, NRM-Style event, complete with a milkweed and tree giveaway!
In May, we’ll help you Connect with Knowledge, and there is no shortage of ways to get involved. For example, join us for a walk in our Annual Spring Bird Walk Series, when seasoned bird watchers will assist novices with observation and identification. Take in the Full Flower Moon or become part of human orrery at Observatory Park. Or, bring your horse to our Trail Horse Nature Challenge to learn about some natural trail obstacles and natural history at Swine Creek Reservation (or one of our naturalist-led horseback rides at The West Woods later in the month).
Then comes June. You’ve been cooped up all winter, but now the weather’s reliably warmer. Connect with Activity this month! There’s Geauga Walkers (for active seniors), a Family Fun Campout, canoeing programs and many others that shout “get out, get out, get out, and get active!” – plus the 5th Annual Caveman Crawl 5K Trail Run!
For Springtime programs visit the park district website on the first day of spring, March 20. There, details on Connect-themed programs can be found by selecting Find a Program/Event, then filtering by interest type “Connect.”
If programs aren’t your cup of tea, consider how each Connect theme applies to your idea of fun and relaxation. Maybe it’s taking an hour or two to study a stream close-up, to relax on a bench along a lake and identify waterfowl with an ID book, or to take a lone run through The West Woods.
We’re excited to help you connect with how good you’ll feel inside once you’re outside doing something you love!
