Need some interesting educational fun for the family? I just received the Winter Ohio Wildlife CenterEducation Programming schedule for the Ohio Wildlife Center and it looks like there are some interesting classes coming up to chase away those winter blahs. (OWC is a wonderful “hidden” gem of an attraction located just north of Dublin, OH in Shawnee Hills.) 

 

From 10 a.m.-12 noon on Saturday, January 10, visitors will find “Hope for the New Year” which centers around Hope the Coyote.  January 23 (9-11 a.m.) brings a program about my favorite — foxes, called “Friday Fox Frolic.” (Those guys are sooooooo cute.) “How much wood can a Woodchuck chuck?” Find out on Monday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m.-12 noon.

 

Looking for a new way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Take your sweetheart to a program about “Love Birds” … all about birds of prey from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, February 14. Wanna play dead? Find out all about Opossums in “Let’s Play Dead” from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, February 18. And last but certainly not least, you can be a part of “Turtle Tuesday” from 2-4 p.m. February 24.

 

OWC is a non-profit organization and a leader in wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education. It is located on Cook Rd. in Shawnee Hills, just north of Baker’s Garden Center. Admission to these classes is $5 for adults and $3 for children 5-10 years old. Animal photo and Life History Notes are included. Better RSVP right now before classes are full. 614/734-9453. www.ohiowildlifecenter.org
