EVERYDAY IN APRIL
The Doan Brook Annual Stream Sweep & Weed Pull on Sunday, April 19 at 1pm is cancelled. Instead, (FUN IDEA!) over the course of the next month, we are encouraging people to pick up litter as part of their outdoor exercise or recreational routines. Fill out a form on the Doan Brook website to share what type and quantity of litter was collected. We will compile the data and keep our community apprised of how much litter was collectively removed from our local neighborhoods and green spaces.
Discover which native plants can be used to establish a beautiful flower-rich native garden that will attract the most pollinators. Learn how to establish nesting sites in your garden, how tall varying species grow, which plants tend to flop or stay erect and which plants are good for border edges. Once your native garden is created you will be amazed at the insect play that unfolds on its floral stage! Bring your plant sale catalog! Presented by Ann Cicarella. FREE.
This program has been postponed.
New date TBD.

Join expert birder Julie West near the right side of the driveway to observe as her team safely captures, bands, and records valuable data about migratory birds in Northeast Ohio. It's a great chance to see some of our native and migratory songbirds up close! Weather permitting.

Make your own rain barrel and save more than just water! We supply the barrel, parts, and tools and show you how to construct a closed, 55-gallon rain barrel system. Barrels can be attached to any standard downspout to collect and conserve rainwater for your plants and yard. This event is in collaboration with Doan Brook Watershed Partnership.
Workshop fee, including parts, is $60. Space is limited and advance registration is required by May 1.
