Hiram College

Matthew Sorrick, Director of The Center for Science Education, has coordinated some outdoor adventures for the next three weekends of November.

Let’s Go Letterboxing- Come to the Hiram College Field Station on Wheeler Rd. this Saturday, November 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to go letterboxing! Letterboxing has its origins from 200 years ago in England when it became a custom to leave messages in small bottles for passers-by to collect and take to villages. Matt Sorrick will lead fun for the whole family; participants will get the materials they need to create their own letterboxing pack, and then will get to search for a hidden letterbox in the forest. The cost for non-members is $5, and it is FREE for members of Friends of the field Station, faculty, staff and students. To register or for more information, call 330.569.6003 or email sorrickmw@hiram.edu, and for more information about letterboxing, visit www.letterboxing.org.

Loon Lake and Apple Pie- Meet Bob Faber at East Branch Reservoir in the rolling Amish Hills of Geauga County near Middlefield on Saturday, November 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Explore hidden trails and pathways, while in search of waterfowl, bald eagles, loons, and swans near the beautiful lake. Following the walk will be an optional lunch at nearby Yoder’s, an Amish style restaurant. The cost for non-members is $5, and is $3 for members of Friends of the Field Station, faculty, staff and students.
