Turkey vultures, garlic mustard, wrens and worms will be some topics of upcoming Wood County Park District programming, beginning Thursday.
That day, a Greenhouse Help will be held at 6 p.m. at the Reuthinger Preserve, Northwood. Volunteers may be asked to perform a variety of functions such as transplanting seedlings, filling pots, or watering plants. No experience is necessary.
Garlic Mustard Removals will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at Otsego Park, and April 15 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wood County Historical Center. Volunteers will help improve wildlife habitat by fighting one of the worst invasive species in our area. Attendees should dress to work outdoors; all tools will be provided and no experience is necessary.
A Wren House Make and Take will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Hankison Great Room of the W. W. Knight Nature Preserve, Perrysburg. Attendees will learn about this bubbly little bird and make a wren house to take home with them. A materials fee of $10 ($5 for Friends of the Wood County Parks members) will be charged.
A LOONA Garden Clean Up will be held April 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Knight Preserve. Volunteers will help prepare the native plant garden for spring. Attendees should dress to work outdoors. All tools will be provided and no experience is necessary.
Return of the Turkey Vultures will be the topic April 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Baldwin Preserve on Euler Road. You've heard of the Hinkley Buzzards? Well, they're really turkey vultures, some of which return to our area and beyond. Observe them in the sky and on the ground, finding out how great "Nature's Flying Janitors" can be.
PiPs (Pre-schoolers in the Parks) will hold a Squirmy Wormy program April 13 at 10:30 a.m. at the Knight Preserve. This program, for children ages 3 to 6, will feature a short story and a craft. Adult companions must remain with children for this program. Please be prepared for outdoor adventures.
