Secrets of Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Join us as we explore Ohio’s scenic national park by train and bicycle! This ranger-led excursion will utilize alternative transportation. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad’s “Bike Aboard” train will take you through the picturesque valley from Peninsula throughout the park. You will eventually pedal your bikes 8 miles back, with leisurely stops along the way to take in the natural and cultural stories of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Be prepared for all types of weather! Rental bicycles, train fare, and lunch included. Step back in time and enjoy the beauty of our national park!

 

 

The conference will be held at the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Brecksville, Ohio. You won’t want to miss the collection of inspirational speakers, as well as a wide array of talented individuals around the country sharing their passion and expertise in conservation education, habitat, re­source management, and community outreach. It is time to re-charge your batteries and enhance your resource library or box of tricks to make the up­coming year even more exciting for the youth and families you are working with!

Please visit www.lep.org for more up to date info on the park, conference agenda, lodging, forms and family vacation opportunities. Listen to the train whistle calling you to the east!

See you soon!
