The month of March gave us an early taste of spring weather and sights. Nature invited us out to feel the warm breezes and observe the arrival of many spring plants. And not that our winter was so bad, but here in Northeast Ohio, we welcome any chance to get out and enjoy our surroundings.
Now that the calendar has finally caught up with the weather, here are some opportunities for you to get out and enjoy your local Ohio State Park:
May 12 from 10am-Noon: The Great Euclid Creek Invasive Plant Pull at Wildwood State Park. We'll be pulling Garlic Mustard, an invasive plant that out-competes native species and isn't a good food source for wildlife. This event is co-sponsored with the Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District. Meet at the Wildwood entrance parking lot. Bring garden/work gloves if you have 'em.
May 26 from 10am-Noon: Fishing Fun at Wildwood State Park. Meet at the west end parking lot. Equipment and bait provided for the first 15 participants under 16 years of age.
Be sure to watch for our summer schedule at our local website: www.clevelandlakefront.org
