makers

Do you like to build or create things by yourself or with your family? Take the opportunity this fall to get creative and showcase your artistic endeavors along the trail at Wolf Creek Environmental Center. Each month will have a different theme, and every registered household will be provided an outdoor space to display what it makes. 

September Theme: Mushrooms
Come on out to Wolf Creek Environmental Center to enjoy the creative talents of your fellow park-goers. Walk along the “Monthly Maker” trail to view mushrooms made from a variety of materials by families and individuals from across the county. Mushrooms will be on public display September 29 through October 10. 

October Theme: Scare-owls (Owl-themed Scarecrows)
(Register online by October 17. Click HERE to register.)
Scarecrows should be three dimensional and made out of materials that are able to withstand being outdoors for at least two weeks. Each household will be limited to one 6-foot metal garden stake with which to attach their masterpiece. Setup will occur between October 20 and 24. Registered individuals/households will be contacted with further details regarding set-up. Scare-owls will be on public display through November 7.

**PLEASE NOTE -- WOLF CREEK ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER HAS LIMITED HOURS. The gate and grounds are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday.) A portable restroom is available in the parking lot.

 

This has been a year for the history books. Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, parks have been a safe destination for recreation, socially-distanced meetings, doggy adventures, and relaxation. We want to encourage feeling connected in this time of distancing by sharing your experiences. Submit your photos taken in a Medina County Park District park or preserve to be displayed in the windows at Susan Hambley Nature Center.
