Tinker’s Creek State Park Hike

November 16th, meet at 3 PM
10303 Aurora Hudson Rd, Streetsboro

Tinker’s Creek is a perfect example of how important it is to preserve Ohio’s marshes and swamps. The park covers over 300 acres, all dedicated to the local plants and animals that call it home. On the hike you will see first-hand how important clean water is and learn what you can do to help keep our watershed healthy for animals, plants and, of course, people! The hike will cover about 1.5 miles with plenty of small ponds and marshes along the way. We will meet at 3 PM in the parking lot, located at 10303 Aurora Hudson Rd, Streetsboro, OH 44241. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. It’s not required, but you can join this event on Facebook!
