Upcoming events


Nature's Springtime Starts Early

A number of wildlife species are already preparing for springtime. We will watch for changes apparent even during a time when snow and ice are still with us. Camera, binoculars, hiking stick for icy conditions. Meet at the Pond Brook Conservation Area of Liberty Park, Buttonbush Trail, Rte 82, east of Twinsburg; allow about 2 hours.

Salamander & Frog Festival
Saturday, March 3rd | 1:00 - 3:00 PM | Twinsburg Community Center

Our annual event returns, with some different craft opportunities for the amphibian-inclined children. A Summit County Metro Park naturalist is expected to bring along an example of our amphibian friends as well. Best enjoyed by up to 4th graders but adults can learn about the lives of our beneficial and colorful, slimy friends! Held in the multipurpose room of the Community Center, the fest ends at 3pm.

Salamander Crossing Evenings
Beginning in March on select evenings

Twinsburg’s most popular outdoor nature program, the “Salamander Crossing” is certainly a night(s) to remember. From the bike path in Center Valley Park, we’ll observe and HEAR the amphibians that call this park their home. Beginning sometime in March, we’ll be implementing our email distribution list to notify when a hike is expected to take place. We’ll be waiting for warm, spring rains, so have your rain gear and flashlights ready when these conditions are expected. The outings will conclude in early April. Strollers for the youngsters are welcome. To be included on the notification list, send you email to sstine@twinsburg.oh.us. Your email address will not be shared. Those people on the 2017 list need not resend if email has not changed.
