As winter’s grip weakens in the final weeks of the season, join Senior Naturalist Dan Best for one of two walkabouts – or both! – to celebrate the promise of spring as heralded by sap rising in the maple trees, mammal activity, and early bird migration.

Discovering Spring’s Early Expressions will be offered at two locations on Saturday, March 2: from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Orchard Hills Park, 340 Caves Road, Chesterland and from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at Walter C. Best Wildlife Preserve, 11620 Ravenna Road (Route 44), Munson Township.

[Did you ever wonder what kind of bird makes this sound?
The red-winged black bird is a sure sign that spring is near!]

Both all-ages walks are wheelchair/stroller accessible. Registration is not required. With questions, call 440-286-9516.

Geauga Park District is online, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
