blendon woods

WHAT: winter nature outing #3: blendon woods metro park

WHEN: wednesday, 2/6 — 10:00a - 12:00p

WHERE: 4265 E Dublin Granville Rd., Westerville

MEETING LOCATION: nature center

WHERE WE'LL BE: nature center and hickory ridge trail (0.5 miles)

DETAILS: We will be splitting our time between a short trail hike and a program with one of their naturalists on the theme of fur, feathers, + scales with live animals of Ohio!

BRING: Please wear nature hike/weather appropriate clothing and shoes. Some families bring an extra change of clothes/towels (just in case things get extra muddy or wet) to our Nature Outings! We also ask that you pack your nature journaling supplies (simple notebooks, color pencils, watercolors — whatever works for your family) as we strive to add in a guided time for this practice at each event!

Due to our shorter event times and colder temperatures in the winter, most families choose to meet up after our outings in small groups at a local fast food restaurant for hot cocoa or a small lunch as they warm up! We’ll get back to our picnics in the spring!

POLICY REMINDER: Families must stay together — parents are responsible for their own their children at all times. Thanks in advance for understanding.

RSVP: This is very important — please use the form below to RSVP for your family! We need to know exactly who is coming so we are sure to not leave anyone behind or spend time waiting for a family that isn't coming! The RSVP form will close at 8:00a on the morning of our event. If anything changes for your RSVP, please send a direct email to — thanks!
