Cell Phone Tour Provides History of Park

The next time you are in the park, check out the FOESP cell phone tour. Our signs are now up! At stations throughout the park, you can listen to interesting facts about the park and its history by calling the number listed. Funding for this project was provided by the Cleveland Waterfront Coaltion.

Nate Jones plays Edgewater on July 12
We are proud to present the first of four free musical performances in the park this summer. Need an excuse to enjoy the sunset and ice cream by the lake? Nate Jones, singer-songwriter, will play from 7-9pm at the beach pavilion on Thursday, July 12. This program is made possible by the Cleveland Colectivo: www.clevelandcolectivo.org

Microplastic Sampling Event
11 am, Saturday, July 21, on the beach, join Dr. Marcus Eriksen from The 5 Gyres Institute as he demonstrates how to sample small bits of plastic, or microplastics.  Learn how our beaches compare to other Great Lake beaches and how to prevent plastic pollution on our beaches and in the Lake.  Contact Cathi Lehn for more information (clehn@cmnh.org).  Sponsored by The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo/Cleveland Zoological Society and the Burning River Foundation. To read more about Marcus and his research visit: http://www.5gyres.org and http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2012/06/plastic_pollution_study_to_be.html
