CENTERBURG — Looking forward to the beauty of autumn and a chance to stroll through the leaves? Centerburg Joint Recreation District is sponsoring an opportunity to enjoy fall color at its peak on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 2 p.m. The tour and program begins from the Centerburg/Hilliar Memorial Park at the corner of U.S. 36 and Ohio 314 at the North edge of Centerburg. Participants will then drive/carpool a short distance to a local woods for a walk through a nature preserve.
“This is an outstanding time of year to get the family out and enjoy the spectacle of vivid color, the smell of autumn leaves and the sound of rustling leaves as we shuffle down the trail,” said Gary Moore CJRD Program Consultant. The program will include a short 5-mile driving tour through the scenic country side past Rich Hill. “This year the tour will visit Kathryn Sheedy Nature Preserve just North of Centerburg where the Morrow County Park District has created some nice trails to access a variety of habitats including a wetland, pine forest, stream, and successional to mature woods” said Moore. We will return to our vehicles for a “tailgate” gathering for hot cider and cookies.
“This program is a good example of how CJRD can add beauty, recreation and fun for local families to enjoy,” said Kevin White, CJRD Administrator. “This is a great time of year to build bonding experiences and future memories with the folks you love.”
