Caring Cubs will celebrate Earth Day a few days late this year at the Cleveland Metroparks’ West Creek Reservation on Sunday, April 26 at 2:30pm. A Natural Resource Manager will teach Caring Cubs water management best practices and lead a hands-on activity. Our cubs will get their hands dirty doing a little rain garden maintenance, weeding, and spring clean up in the Metroparks!
Caring Cubs will provide gardening gloves but families are also welcome to bring their own. Some of this event will be outdoors. Please dress in layers of weather-appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty or wet
The Cleveland Metroparks are an outstanding feature of our community. The mission of the Cleveland Metroparks is to conserve significant natural resources and enhance people’s lives by providing safe, high-quality outdoor education, recreation, and zoological opportunities.
Regardless of whether your family is participating in the Caring Cubs event, the Cleveland Metroparks is hosting a family friendly event at the same location just prior to our event. The Rejuvenary River Circus will be at the Watershed Stewardship Center on Sunday, April 26 from 1:00 -2:00p.m. Families are encouraged and invited to come see the Arm-of-the-Sea Theater present a story about the life of a river, specifically adapted from the Great Lakes and Cuyahoga River. This show features gorgeous masks, giant puppet characters and live, original music for family friendly fun.
