Mothing ‘til Midnight

June (date to be announced) 9:30 p.m.-12 a.m. Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598

Call the Crawford Park District to the list for a pop-up program on Midnight Mothing! Ohio is home to thousands of species of beautiful moths, most of which are nocturnal. Special lights will be used to attract them to a mothing sheet, so stop in any time after dark for an up-close look at them. There will even be opportunities to hold some of the bigger moths! Watch Facebook for updates on when this event will take place since we are aiming for a warm, windless night. If you’d like to be added to a contact list for this event, please call the Crawford Park District at 419-683-9000. Lowe-Volk Park is located 3 miles north of US Route 30.

Silhouette Hike

June Sunrise-Sunset All Parks

This summer be on the lookout for “animals” along the trails at all 6 of our parks. Snap a picture when you find each animal silhouette and send them to the Crawford Park District by email at [email protected] or via messenger. Once you have found all 6 animals, you will receive a button of your favorite animal silhouette. You will be entered into a drawing for a prize basket that includes a coupon for early camp registration/no wait for registration for your immediate family.

Each month the animals will make a move to a new spot in the park, giving you the opportunity to have your name entered into the drawing 3 times! There is an additional large silhouette that will be lurking about the different parks. If you capture a picture of the big “animal”, you will receive an additional button.

Silhouettes can be found starting June 1 at Lowe-Volk Park, Sandusky Headwaters Preserve, Unger Park, Heckert Nature Preserve, Sears Woods and Daughmer Savannah. Contact the Crawford Park District at 419-683-9000 for questions or more information.
