Friends of the Foundation,
Please join us for the latest opportunity to explore the great parks in beautiful Geauga County. Our next walk will take place at Frohring Meadows.
Frohring Meadows is a 298-acre park in Bainbridge Township that features a 100-acre prairie, and trails through the woodlands.
From the Geauga Park District website: In 1996, Paul Frohring, a pioneer in the development of nutritional and medical supplements, donated the land that surrounded his Bainbridge farmhouse to Geauga Park District. Much of the property was once farmland; soybeans, oats, corn, and wheat were harvested here. In 1999, Geauga Park District entered into a 50-year lease with Chagrin Falls for 122 acres adjacent to the Frohring property.
This 2.6 mile walk should last about 90 minutes and will take place rain or shine. Well-behaved spouses and pets are most welcome.
Early May is a great time for welcoming back migrating birds like Red-winged Blackbirds and Bobolinks, so please remember to bring your binoculars! Wildflowers will also be starting to appear.
We also plan to talk about the history of this park and some of the upcoming enhancements planned for habitat and structures.
Feel free to forward this email to anyone who might be interested in this or future Explorer Series events.
