August 17 at 6:30 p.m. Presentation and Hike at Allardale Park. Our special guest will be Nathan Eppink, Director of the Medina County Park District, who will tell us about Allardale and other Medina parks. A hike will follow. You are welcome to come early with your picnic dinner; the park has a number of tables in scenic locations. (Historical note: the Allard family received one of our first Seiberling Service awards, recognizing the gift of the land that became the park.)

September 14 at 7:00 p.m. Conservation discussion via Zoom. Visit here to register.

September 21 at 7:00 p.m. Electric Car Display at the Unitarian Universalist Church. 3300 Morewood Road, Fairlawn. What has happened in the two years since our last electric car event?  Many new models have appeared, they go farther on a charge, and and their operation is more user-friendly. Here’s your chance to compare the old and new, kick some tires, and think about a clean, green auto in your garage.

Volunteer Opportunities

Here’s a great opportunity for alert, wide-awake, energetic, and committed environmentalists!

Akron Peninsula Road Cleanup. Picking up trash along two miles of Akron Peninsula Road in the CVNP is a long-standing PTG responsibility. We do it three or four times per  year on Saturday mornings. It takes at most two hours. A nice walk if nothing else. If you can help out, call or email Dan Nelson, 330-666-4246 or DMNelson@roadrunner.com
