CRAWFORD PARK DISTRICT EVENTS


Infant Explorers: Pumpkins

Wednesday, Nov. 17 • 5 p.m.

Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598

Your first instinct may be to keep your babies indoors. However, research tells us that infants in outdoor spaces benefit from access to a wide variety of sensory stimuli which they just can’t experience indoors. Join Crawford Park District Naturalist Abby and baby Vincenzo for a program about pumpkins that will engage your infant’s senses and get parents and baby out of the house for some fresh air! Dress for the weather; we will be outside for at least part of the program.

Viewing the Night Sky

Saturday, Nov. 20 • 5:30 p.m.

Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598

Join members of the Crawford Park Astronomy Club as they share their knowledge and telescope skills with all who are interested in the celestial sights.

Nature Storytime

Monday, Nov. 22 • 10 a.m.

Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598

Join Crawford Park District Naturalist Chelsea for an interactive read aloud and a fun story-related activity or animal visitor! It will be held outside in nice weather or inside the Nature Center if it is raining (or snowing!). Kids will receive a nature storytime ticket for attending and can choose a prize after five visits.

Bird Walk

Sunday, Nov. 28 • 9 a.m.

Sears Woods State Nature Preserve, 1486 Mt. Zion Road

Conditions far to the north of Ohio dictate what types of birds will spend the winter in the Buckeye State. Last year brought a spectacular invasion of northern finches; come and learn what this year will bring. Meet Warren Uxley at the Sears Woods parking lot located on Mt. Zion Road, west of Bucyrus.

Book Club

Monday, Nov. 29 • 6 p.m.

Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598

Do you love nature and also love to read? With the abundance of books available for nature lovers, sometimes it is hard to choose the next great book to read. Join the Crawford Park District’s Book Club and we will figure it out together! Come armed with your favorite book about nature or a nature centered book you want to read and be ready to make your case to the club! Meetings are held at the Lowe-Volk Park Nature Center the last Tuesday of each month.
