There also is a great view of the Milky Way galaxy from the park.

Sunday, Nov. 24 is Feeding Day at Lowe-Volk Park. It starts at 2 p.m. Will it be fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, shrimp, worms, or mice? Can you guess what’s on the menu for the animals in the Nature Center? The Crawford Park District invites families to stop out to the Lowe-Volk Park Nature Center to find out who eats what and take turns helping feed some of the animals.

A Bird Walk is on the schedule at Sears Woods, 1486 Mount Zion Road in Bucyrus, at 2 p.m. Sunday. Conditions far to the north of Ohio dictate what types of birds will spend the winter in the Buckeye State. Each year is different, but it’s always interesting. Come and learn what this year will bring. Meet Crawford Park District Naturalist Warren Uxley at the Sears Woods parking lot for the program on birds.
