Owls are establishing their territory and preparing to nest, which begins in the heart of winter. Now that the leaves have fallen it is a perfect time of year to spot owls and learn about their habitat and life cycle. This will be a fun experience for the whole family, led by local Ohio Certified Volunteer naturalists. Dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and bring a flashlight and your sense of adventure.
This program is free of charge and anyone interested in experiencing the natural world is welcomed. Please register HERE. For more information contact Lori Williams at the Park Office, 382-4781.

“I wanted to invite pedestrians to consider some simple environmental ideas while they walked” says Deignan. “People connect to nature in so many different ways, so the approach to the content is quite diverse. Some stations cover basic natural history, while others contain nature poems or speak to one particular feature or concept. The goal is merely to help people become more aware and appreciative of the mosaic of life all around them.”

Lytle Creek League of Conservators invites you to celebrate our ongoing efforts to "create a living legacy" in the form of the Lytle Creek Greenway. As is our custom, we will also be honoring the work of two local individuals who have made our natural environment a better place. This year we will be honoring a man and woman who have impacted countless lives in their roles as educators and mentors.
Monte Anderson, Wilmington College professor of agriculture, has been recognized many times for his teaching excellence. He has played a key role in the success of the Wilmington College agriculture program, the Grow Food, Grow Hope program and directed many of the college's efforts to protect and improve the quality of Lytle Creek.
