Quarry Farm Family Day @ Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm
Apr 30 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm is holding its annual Family Day from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday. The event is free and open to the public.

The event will feature an open house of fun in the gardens, woods and wetlands. A representative from Black Swamp Raptor Rehabilitation Center, Pandora, will be on-site with several birds of prey.

Attendees of all ages can make their own walking staff and take it with them along the trails to count spring wildflowers and butterflies and visit with the residents of the farm animal sanctuary. “Lasting Leaf” T-shirts may also be made for a donation to the nonprofit organization in support of educational programming.

The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm is located just north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora. For more information, visit www.thequarryfarm.org or call 419-384-7195.
