April 2013: Celebrating Earth Day by Planting Trees in the Metroparks

Nearly 100 volunteers braved the cold on Saturday, April 20, 2013 to plant trees in the Cleveland Metroparks!  We are now proud to say that there are 50 trees in “Caring Cubs Forest” (our unofficial name) at Little Cedar Point Picnic Area in the Rocky River Reservation.

Thank you to the students and staff from Tri-C’s Early Childhood Education program who volunteered at this event!

Thank you to the Sierra Club and the Cleveland Metroparks for making this event possible!

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.  The Cleveland Metroparks offers programs for the entire family and their Kids Club program is specifically designed for children 12 and under.  Kids Club provides opportunities to enjoy activities, exploration and fun experiences year-round in the Cleveland Metroparks and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is the largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the country. The Northeast Ohio Sierra Club has partnered with Caring Cubs to assist in this event, helping our youngest friends learn to explore, enjoy, and protect the planet.
