About the Magazine
Green Islands is produced quarterly and mailed free of charge to Summit County residents.* If you would like to be added to the mailing list, click here.
*We only send publications to in-county residents because the park district is funded by Summit County tax dollars. However, Friends of Metro Parks will send our publications to its members who live outside of Summit County.
Turkeys are becoming a common, year-round sight in the Metro Parks. Males are called gobblers, females are hens. The young are called poults.
Slippery elm trees are named for their inner bark, which is moist and slippery. American Indians used the bark to reduce swelling and take the venom out of a bite or sting. It is still used today to make throat lozenges.
