RESCHEDULED!! -- Bumble Blitz at Letha House Park in Medina County

We will focus most of our attention on the approximate 36-acre restoration site on the east side of the property, but visitors will be free to explore the entire 160-acre site.

We hope you'll bring a camera/phone, your enthusiasm, and curiosity to hunt for bees to add to our knowledge of the species present at Letha House Park.

Letha House Park is located at: 5745 Richman Road, Spencer, OH 44275. We will meet near the shelter on the east side of Richman Road at 11am. We will be off trail in ...more ↓
