Bring Friends and Family for Fun Day Monday at Penitentiary Glen on January 21

Rain, snow and ice, isn’t it nice? Winter in Northeast Ohio can bring many unexpected surprises but also many fun adventures. Bring family and friends for a good time during Fun Day Monday on January 21st, at Penitentiary Glen Reservation. This event is free for all ages.

Stop by the Nature Center between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and explore inside and outside activities while enjoying them in hands-on ways. Enjoy scavenger hunts, a seasonal nature craft, s’mores, animal programs and much more! Naturalists will be on hand to answer all of your nature-related questions and to help guide you through the day.

Inside the Nature Center, visitors can interact with hands-on nature exhibits and displays, watch for wildlife through the “Window on Wildlife” and browse the Nature Store for nature-themed gifts ideas and bird feeders, t-shirts, field guides, toys, children’s books and more.

Outside, explore the interactive Nature Play area (weather permitting), sign out an X-Plorer pack filled with seasonal hands-on activities, see our wildlife animal ambassadors in the Kevin P. Clinton Wildlife Center yard and hike on more than 8.5 miles of trails.

The Nature Center and Wildlife Center are open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Nature Store is open until 4:30 p.m.
