Here are some great events to mark on the calender which will be held at the Woodcock Creek Nature Center, at 21742 German Rd., Meadville. Thanks to Kathy Uglow, the environmental educator at the Center for sending the list along.
In case the links don't work, I'm working on it, so you might have to manually type the address in or google.
The folks at the center do a great job and there are always a lot of fun activites.
