Black Swamp Conservancy presents Boys &
Girls Club Workshop
Black Swamp Conservancy
will present a conservation workshop to the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Toledo on Thursday,
August 9, 2012 at Pearson Metropark North in Oregon. The
workshop will run from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.
This workshop was originally to be held on June 28, but had to
be rescheduled due to the severe heat (record high of 103
degrees) that occurred that day.
Entitled “Conservation Matters,” the workshop is presented by
the Conservancy in partnership with the Black Swamp Bird
Observatory, Lucas County Soil & Water Conservation District,
and Metroparks of the Toledo Area. “Conservation Matters” is
made possible by generous grants from the Reed Fund of the
Toledo Community Foundation and the Darden Foundation.
Workshop participants will enjoy conservation themed activities
including; a geocaching treasure hunt, migratory bird obstacle
course, and hands-on soil and plant exploration projects.
