Conservancy Homestead Open House
Date: Saturday, May 2nd
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Black Swamp Conservancy Homestead - 4825 Sugar Ridge Rd., Pemberville (directly across the street from Eastwood High School)
Black Swamp Conservancy has finally found a permanent home for its permanent organization! Join us as we officially welcome the community to our new space.
The morning will include viewing of the historic home and offices; mini tours of the woods and prairie; and a nature walk through the 80-acre woods to the heron rookery in the heart of the property. Nature walk will embark promptly at 11:00 a.m. (Please note the woods will most likely be very wet for the nature walk. Muck boots type shoes are highly recommended.)
Guests are asked to park in the Eastwood Schools parking lot directly across the street. Questions? Please call Sarah at 419-833-1025 or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
