Family Hayride Night!

The first of our two Fall Family Hayride Nights took place on Friday night with ideal, crisp, clear autumn weather. Pizza and pasta, planetarium shows and live animals, crafts and a haywagon ride through Huntington Reservation were part of the evening's activities for families.

Our Halloween Hayride night on the 29th is nearing capacity. So, if you have your heart set on attending, sign up as soon as you can to avoid disaopointment!

Bay Village Bicentennial

It took a lot of people to pull it off, but we had a great time creating a fun Bay Bicentennial Parade entry for Lake Erie Nature & Science Center yesterday.
Led by the creator of our borrowed 100-foot python, Larry Bell, nearly two dozen volunteers, expertly carried the giant snake along the parade route, hissing and doing the wave all the way! Our Executive Director Catherine Timko and her husband, Marty, procured use of the snake and transported it to and from Bay Village.

We also had volunteers showing off live animals from the open doors of our van and handing out woodland animal and reptile silly bandz.
On Saturday we hosted free crafts and a historical Meet An Animal program put on by expert live animal Volunteer, Rob Catalano.
