6/3/17 Trail Challenge 10:00 AM Metroparks of the Toledo Area Register
  Help us celebrate National Trail Day by signing up to take the Trail Challenge. Set your goal of 50, 100 or 150 miles and create your plan to accomplish your goal and hike! To participate: register online or mail in your registration form with your entry fee. You will receive a t-shirt, entry into the Trail Challenge FaceBook group and invitations to special trail hikes. Your reward will be a hiking stick with the badge of the miles you completed 50, 100 or 150. The form is for you to track your mileage. You can drop off or mail your completed form to Wildwood Preserve Visitors Center by June 30, 2018. You will then be notified when rewards are available for pick-up.

Metroparks encourages you to set a stretch goal, a GET OUTSIDE YOURSELF kind of goal. For some, that will be accomplishing the 50 miles for others the 100 or 150. Watch for Metroparks Featured Trails. Try a trail in a Metropark you've not previously visited. When registering online enter your Mile Goal into the 'Age of Children' text field.

1/1/18 Snowshoe Pop-Up Programs: Ages 5+ 12:00 PM Off-Site Register
  When the snow falls get outside and escape on a snowshoe hike through the winter wonderland of your Metroparks. Snowshoe pop-up programs will be posted on short notice when the snow conditions are right.

Register here to get your email on our email list; this does NOT register you for a snowshoe program. When it snows and a pop-up snowshoe program is scheduled you will receive an email alert; you must register for each pop-up program individually. There are no snowshoe programs pre-scheduled for January, February, or March; registering for these dates simply puts your email on the email list to be alerted when a pop-up program is scheduled.

2/10/18 CANCELLED: Winter Gardening Series: Planting When the Roots Are Not Right: Presented by Professional Gardeners and Author-Photographers Janet Macunovich and Steven Nikkila 9:00 AM Toledo Botanical Garden Registration Closed
  CANCELLED: We all have an unprecedented wide choice in plant species and variety. However; we're also in the midst of a perfect storm of production practices and economic realities that have made it all too likely that the plant we buy will not have a good root system. Despite careful selection based on 30 years' professional experience, we find compromised roots systems when we unwrap or depot new plants. Sometimes we reject a plant even after purchase but more often we implement fixes. In this presentation, we share how this situation came about, the research attention it is getting, what you can expect to see, the fixes we've learned and results we've seen. Professional gardeners and authors-photographers Janet Macunovich and Steven Nikkila will lead you through this informative presentation.
