CRESTLINE — The Crawford Park District has announced three programs will take place on Saturday, Feb. 12, at a couple of locations.
Winter Indoor Bird Watching
This program is set for Saturday, Feb. 12 at 8 a.m. in Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598.
The winter months provide unique opportunities to observe common winter bird species from close distances all from the comfort of being indoors. Set out a bird feeder and watch the birds flock in for an easy meal.
Enjoy donuts and hot beverages with the Crawford Park District staff inside the Nature Center, as we sit and observe common birds that visit our bird feeders. Binoculars are recommended.
Lowe-Volk Park is located 3 miles north of US Route 30. For information on other programs offered by the Crawford Park District call 419-683-9000, visit our website at or follow along on Facebook. 
This program is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 12 at 11 a.m. in Daughmer Savannah, 786 Marion Melmore Road.
Winter is coming to an end and vegetation is slowly coming back to life. This change in seasonality means a transition for our Natural Resource Crew in managing for invasive species.
Our goal is to help make the community a better place to live and work, and to do that through reliable, independent, local journalism that focuses on solutions. Help us tell the whole story of our region by becoming a member today.
Join Crawford Park District staff for our last monthly Stewardship Program where the focus will be on removing woody species such as such as Glossy Buckthorn (Frangula alnus), Autumn Olive (Elaeagnus umbellata), Honeysuckle (Amur sp.), and Tree-of-Heaven (Ailanthus altissima).
There will be a brief introduction about stewardship and our target species before heading out into the field. Closed toe shoes, long sleeves, and pants are required. There is a possibility of contact with poison ivy. Dress for the weather. Some gloves and loppers will be available.
Daughmer Savannah located at 786 Marion-Melmore Road just north of SR 294. Look for information on other programs offered by the Crawford Park District by visiting their web site at or by visiting the Facebook page.
