We will start our journey at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes and then hike around Lower Lake. Learn about the history of the lake and how removing invasive plants and planting natives is improving habitats. Co-hosted by Kim Smith from Journey on Yonder (JOY), Friends of Lower Lake, The Doan Brook Watershed Partnership and the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. Refreshments available following the hike. Supported by the Cleveland Foundation as part of Common Ground and #FredWalksCLE, a neighborhood event series exploring the natural environments that nourish and sustain Northeast Ohio.
SUNDAY JUNE 30 10-1:30PM
Unite at our region's day of community conversation where residents meet, share a meal, and connect. FredWalksCLE starts the conversation this spring by highlighting the valuable resources we share, the ambitious projects that aim to improve and protect them, and the individuals doing the work that makes Greater Cleveland an amazing place to call home. This event is supported by the Cleveland Foundation as part of Common Ground and #FredWalksCLE, a neighborhood event series exploring the natural environments that nourish and sustain Northeast Ohio.
