Streams, ponds and even the beach will be the topics of upcoming programming from the Wood County Park District.
On Thursday, a Native Nursery Night will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the J. C. Reuthinger Memorial Preserve, Northwood. Volunteers may be asked to plant, water, weed or collect seed. Attendees should dress to work outdoors and bring gloves if available. Another Native Nursery Night will be held June 6 at the same location and time.
On Saturday a Pre-Schoolers in the Parks (PiP) program entitled "Hit the Beach" will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the Bradner Preserve's Fostoria Road Access. For children 3 to 6 years of age, the program will allow attendees to enjoy a short story and a craft. Adult companions must remain with children for this program, and the children should be prepared for outdoor adventures.
Also on Saturday, a Stream Quality Monitoring will be held at Otsego Park at 1 p.m. Attendees will help monitor the water quality of the Maumee River, and no experience is necessary. Volunteers will go in the river, and should be dressed appropriately with appropriate footwear.
Paddle the Pond will take place June 3 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the W. W. Knight Nature Preserve. Attendees can come and take one of the available canoes for a spin on the pond. For those who have never canoed before, this is a good opportunity to give it a try. Canoes, paddles, life preservers and instructions are provided. There is no charge, and the Park District will provide

all necessary supplies. Canoes will be used on a first-come, first-served basis.
A Planting Natives volunteer opportunity will be available June 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bradner Preserve. Native plants that were grown in the Park District's greenhouse are ready to plant in the parks and preserves, and volunteers can assist in planting some at the Bradner Preserve. Tools will be provided. Attendees should dress to work outdoors and bring gloves if available.
