summer nature outing #1: creeking at shale hollow park


WHAT: Summer Nature Outing #2: Creeking at Shale Hollow Park

WHEN: Wednesday, 7/10 — 10:00a - 1:00p
Please note this event takes place the
second week of July to avoid conflicts with holiday plans.

WHERE: 6320 Artesian Run, Lewis Center 43035

MEETING LOCATION: Enter on Artesian Run and park in the lot at the bottom of the hill by the natural play area/restrooms.

WHERE WE'LL BE: We’ll be creeking beyond the natural play area and lunching near the restrooms.



BRING: Please bring creeking gear (nets, buckets, etc.), lots of towels, sunscreen, and bug/tick repellent. Also, please wear creeking-friendly/weather appropriate clothing and shoes. Some families bring an extra change of clothes/towels/wipes (just in case things get extra muddy or wet — and they often do) to our Nature Outings! We also host guided nature journaling during our events — so, please bring whatever supplies your family would like to use for this time. Some draw or watercolor in dedicated notebooks, some take pictures, and some write and describe what they’ve discovered. You're also welcome to bring nature observation tools. And don't forget a packed lunch for your family and plenty of drinking water!

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!
