Spring is (almost) here! Caring Cubs will be volunteering for the Cleveland Metroparks on Saturday, May 3 at 9:00am. We will be helping to plant small shrubs in the West Creek Reservation in Parma. This is a unique experience and will give your family the opportunity to have personally contributed to the future of the Metroparks and have a landmark to visit in the future. These plants will be part of the Cleveland Metroparks for years to come and are so important that the quality and success of the planting sites will be reported back to the EPA.
Come prepared – we will be getting dirty at this outdoor event! Please wear appropriate clothing and foot attire. Gloves are recommended and the children are welcome to bring their gardening tools (shovels, watering cans, etc). There will be staff and volunteers available so you can request assistance with any of the activities to ensure an enjoyable and safe event.
The Cleveland Metroparks are an outstanding feature of our community. The mission of the Cleveland Metroparks is to conserve significant natural resources and enhance people’s lives by providing safe, high-quality outdoor education, recreation, and zoological opportunities.
