Children ages 3 to 6 and their adult companions are invited to explore an old canal lock to learn all about the “big ditch” that helped Akron become a big city! A special character from the past will be on hand to bring the Ohio and Erie Canal era to life for us. Be prepared to be outside and on-trail, rain or shine. Please make arrangements for younger children unable to hike along. ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED AND BEGINS 9/3: 330-865-8065. DLQ
