    520332 - Interpreting the Local Landscape

    Interpreting the Local Landscape
    Saturday, March 16th, 2019
    9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    Wintergarden Park Nature Center
    615 S. Wintergarden Road

    Ever wonder why a tree was left to grow in a cornfield? Why does it seem there are always two evergreen trees growing on either side of a farmhouse in the country? Why is Bowling Green located where it is… and why are tree-lined streets tree-lined in the first place? The answers to these and many other questions will be answered during, "Reading the Local landscape" a program presented by Chris Gajewicz from the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department. Chris has studied and taught in the natural environment for over 30 years and throughout those years he has always believed it is impossible to understand the natural environment without understanding human interaction within it. Join Chris as he leads participants on a journey that explains why we humans did what we did and continue to do what we do as we coexist with our natural and human altered environments.

    The day begins with coffee and donuts, (donation please), at the Rotary Nature Center in Wintergarden Park, Bowling Green, Ohio with a visual presentation, followed by a guided walk around Wintergarden Park. After the walk, the program continues with a drive around parts of Wood County where the group will explore several natural and cultural footprints of our pioneer and Native American ancestors; the evidence they left behind either on purpose or by accident.

    This program is specifically designed for adult learners only. The program will be limited to the first 25 participants, and pre-registration is a must. Dress for the weather and make sure your gas tank is on "full". Car pooling can be arranged at the park if the group members so choose.
    For information on how to register, please go to and click on the drop down menu for Parks and Recreation; nature programs, stop in at the Bowling Green Community Center, 1245 Newton Road, Bowling Green, Ohio between 5:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. M-TH, 5:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. F, 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Sat, 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Sunday or call 419.354.6223 for front desk assistance.
