Walk For Wildlife: May 7-8 @ Blue Creek Conservation Area

Posted Mar 25th, 2010 by Mark Tooman  Category: Arts & Entertainment,


Nature’s Nursery, a nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education organization serving northwest Ohio, will host its second “Walk For Wildlife” on Friday and Saturday, May 7-8, 2010 at the Blue Creek Conservation Area, 7790 Schadel Rd., Whitehouse, Ohio. Friday’s event is for school groups from 10 a.m. to noon. Saturday is open to the public with registration at 9 a.m. followed by the walk at 10 a.m.

Participants will walk a one-mile course, stopping along the way for ongoing programs and activities at education stations sponsored by Nature’s Nursery and its partner organizations, including the Metroparks of the Toledo Area, Lucas Soil and Water Conservation District, Toledo Rain Garden Initiative, Lourdes College Life Lab.

“Walk for Wildlife is ideal for kids and adults alike since you walk at your own pace,” explains Event Chairman Denise Gehring. “The various stations along the walking route will offer participants an opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife up close, and to take part in a variety of nature-based activities.”

Individuals, families and groups or teams are all invited to participate. Walkers are asked to raise at least $20 in pledges. Contributions are tax-deductible.

Nature’s Nursery also is sponsoring a poster contest for grade school students. Students can win a field trip for themselves and their class to Nature’s Nursery or an in-class educational program.

Pledge forms, poster contest rules, entry forms and more information about the event are available at the Nature’s Nursery website, or by calling 419-877-0060.
