Our most popular birding program is back for another year! Not only will registrants receive a beautiful lapel pin to showcase their Greene County Birding pride, but they will also gain access to four Birding Pin Exclusive birding excursions led by GCP&T Naturalist, Jared Merriman. Plus, more fun surprises are in store! All proceeds from birding pin registrations go towards habitat stewardship efforts in our parks!
Each week, we will get our heart rate up and get moving while enjoying the outdoors in our beautiful parks. Walks are guided and self-paced. Greene County Parks & Trails, Fairborn Parks and Recreation and the City of Beavercreek Parks Department have teamed up to provide walks all over Greene County.
All walks are rated for difficulty with a 1 being the easiest and a 3 being the most difficult. Ratings consider terrain, elevation changes, etc.
EverWalk is a movement designed to build a nation of walkers and get people off their phones, out in nature and living healthier lifestyles. It was created by Diana Nyad, the first person in history to swim the 111 miles from Cuba to Florida, and her Cuba swim expedition leader, Bonnie Stoll. These walks are popular all over the United States and abroad. We will be hosting them in Greene County again in 2022.
This is a free program, registration is not required. All well-mannered dogs are encouraged as long as they are on leash.
We are taking our littlest back in time...and when we say back, we mean to the 1980's for a pint-sized drive-in AND car show at Caesar Ford Park. Does your child own a Power Wheels? How about a pedal car? Any other unique riding toy? Bring them out for this one-of-a-kind car show event for kids only.
The feature movie of the afternoon is Paw Patrol The Movie! When their biggest rival, Humdinger, starts wreaking havoc as the mayor of Adventure City, Ryder and everyone's favorite heroic pups kick into high gear to face the challenge. Armed with exciting new gadgets and gear, the PAW Patrol joins forces with a savvy dachshund to save the citizens of Adventure City.
The cars will be judged by our guest panel...but don't worry, everyone will be a winner in our eyes.
So tease up the hair, get out the fluorescent clothing, put on the leg warmers and join us for a Classic Fun Day...
