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.

3/15/18 Toledo Naturalist Association: Exploring Saipan's Avifauna and Natural History 7:00 PM Wildwood Preserve No Registration Required
  Annie Crary traveled to Saipan as a bird banding biologist for the Institute for Bird Populations and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Division of Fish and Wildlife during the spring and summer of 2009 and fall of 2010 and ran six banding stations in different habitats on the island in order to determine molt sequence and timing of Saipanís resident, nonmigratory landbirds, and to piece together information about breeding seasonality. Saipan is a small island that rests along the Marianas Trench 136 miles north of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. It has 13 species of native nonmigratory landbirds and four nonnative species, as well as numerous seabirds and shorebirds. Join us as we explore the rich natural and human history of a tropical paradise. Swim with colorful reef creatures, meet the birds of Saipan, learn the intricacies of avian molt, and discover new, undocumented molt patterns.
