If you're looking to give back while it's super nice out, the Ohio State Parks are looking for volunteers to lead hikes, clean up trails and do other things. In 2008 volunteers worked more than 350,000 hours in the parks. Pretty cool! The next Green Drinks meeting will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, June 18, at Lodge Bar in the Arena District. [Info] The Appalachian Forest School, headquartered in southern Ohio, will host a great new program Aug. 16-21. "Living Rivers" will teach fledgling naturalists about stream ecology, watershed dynamics and other important things that directly influence Buckeye ecosystems. (ODNR photo)
