Join the Westlake Garden Club on Wed., Nov. 16 at 1 p.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library to “Explore the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.” Karen Patterson, retired history teacher, former seasonal park ranger, and volunteer for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, will take us on a guided tour of the National Parks and focus on the National Park in our back yard. Learn about the hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, historic areas, a Beaver Marsh, abundant wildlife and much more. We also have the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad that runs within the park. If you have never visited the CVNP, this is a great opportunity to learn about what the park has to offer and to see what you have been missing. Please join us for this educational and enlightening program. Call 440-665-5463 for more information or to confirm your attendance. Refreshments will be served.
