Join us for a presentation by Mr. Scott Carpenter

Wednesday evening Oct. 18th at 7:00 pm

Title of Program:  What if tomorrow were different?

Everyone is welcome!

Scott, a resident of Oregon, Ohio is director of public relations for Metroparks of the Toledo Area, a regional park district with 12,000 acres and 160 miles of trails in Lucas County.  A former newspaper reporter and editor, he is the author of the book “Lake Erie Journal” (2000).  In July, he marked his 20th year at Metroparks.

Cities across the country have improved their quality of life and changed their image for the better by embracing their natural resources – particularly their waterfronts.  In each case, change began with someone asking “What if Tomorrow Were Different?”.  Metroparks has embarked on an ambitious plan to place a park within five miles of every resident of Lucas County, connect these parks with trails and activate them with memorable outdoor experiences.  Plans include the largest coastal wetland restoration currently underway on the Great Lakes, new waterfront parks in downtown Toledo – even tree houses in the globally rare Oak Openings. 

We meet in the Monroe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Road, Life Science Building (large ‘L’ on exterior of building), room 201.  For ease of access, there is an elevator as well as a second entrance to the classroom which contains no stairs. 

 

A brief membership meeting discussion precedes the presentation and our meetings are always FREE! Light refreshments are served. Please bring a friend, neighbor, fellow birder or family member to this wonderful presentation! If you'd like to join our club, individual memberships are $20/year and family memberships are $25/year to support the wildlife conservation efforts we participate in!
