Upcoming Events

A Romp Through The Woods
Sunday, February 18th, 1:30PM

Come join local naturalist, humorist and conservationist (three vastly different characters in one pair of boots) John Lorson for a fun romp through the wintertime woods. He'll point out some interesting things, likely make fun of himself a bit and share some mildly embarrassing stories about his wife, artist Kristin Lorson, who will also be along for the trek.  You may even meet Frankie, the couple's Australian Labracoondog second son. Should be fun, but even if it's not you'll still leave with a story to tell!  
This will be a moderate 1-2 mile hike without crossing the Run.

 

Our cold weather hikes will be accompanied by a campfire afterwards.  Bring chairs if you like.

These group hikes are brought to you by Friends of Wooster Memorial Park (www.friendsofwmp.com) and are open to the public. Event will begin at the Education Parking Area. Come prepared for the weather and to have a good time!

"Thanking Maple Trees and The Moon of Making Maple Syrup"
Sunday, March 3rd, 5:00PM

It’s Maple Madness month in Ohio—a wonderful moment to thank maple trees for their delicious, flowing gift. Come on an easy hike to the beautiful stand of maples just north of the Old Field, where we will share a taste of local syrup, toast the trees, then circle around to talk about the wonders of the season some Native Americans called The Moon of Making Maple Syrup.

The 5:00 meeting time will allow us to enjoy the approaching sunset around the campfire.

Please bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
