Is Creativity in Your Nature?

The new Monthly Makers program offers an opportunity to add a little personal creativity to the beauty of the fall season.

Participants are invited to create an art project — solo or with their families — on a different monthly theme and have the project displayed along a trail at Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Preserve, home of Wolf Creek Environmental Center. The program is free and open to all ages.

The October theme is scare-owls – owl-themed scarecrows! Scarecrows should be three dimensional and made out of materials that are able to withstand being outdoors for at least two weeks. Each household will be limited to one 6-foot metal garden stake with which to attach their masterpiece.

Simply visit www.MedinaCountyParks and click on “Programs,” then “Program Listing” to register. Setup will occur between October 20 and 24. Registered individuals/households will be contacted with further details regarding set-up. Scare-owls will be on public display through November 7.

Mushroom art projects (September’s theme) is on public display through October 10.

Please note Wolf Creek Environmental Center has limited hours. The gate and grounds are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday.) A portable restroom is available in the parking lot. The building remains closed due to COVID-19.
