Old Woman Creek climate discovery day

The Climate Discovery Lab at Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) promises visitors an afternoon of fun and learning in a center filled with new interactive science exhibits. The Learning Lab will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on April 21 and April 22 and will introduce the latest Great Lakes climate science, using hands-on tools and activities that address a changing climate close to home.

During the event, visitors can discover sources of carbon pollution and learn how to reduce their carbon footprint. They can also take home a small demonstration of how wetlands store carbon to share with friends. Playing interactive games with staff at various stations will allow families to explore the potential wildlife and habitat impact challenges of a changing climate.

This event is presented by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' (ODNR) Division of Wildlife and Ohio Sea Grant with assistance from the Friends of Old Woman Creek. For more information call the Reserve at 419-433-4601.
