In-School Ranger Visits 
Students (grades 2-5) can learn more about being safe outdoors with an in-school visit by a uniformed Metro Parks ranger. Topics include summer and winter safety techniques, and students receive Junior Ranger badges and other materials. For scheduling, please call 330-865-8052.

Guided programs fulfill many of the nature-related badge requirements for BSA Bear Cubs, BSA Webelos Scouts, GSA Brownies and GSA Juniors. For more information, call the Nature Realm: 330-865-8065. (Pictured: older scouts building an Eagle Scout project)

Butterfly Bio
Most butterflies only live a short time during warmer months. However, mourning cloaks hibernate as adults and then mate in early spring.

Venomous Snakes
Twenty-seven snake species are found in Ohio, but only three are venomous: timber rattle, copperhead and massasauga. None are typically found in Summit County.
