TECH-FREE TUESDAY AT LANDEN-DEERFIELD PARK 7/20/21! 
Join us this week at Landen-Deerfield Park for our Tech-Free Tuesday program on FOSSILS. We will have a sensory sand-pit for digging and exploring, a fossil-themed craft, and real fossils to examine. There are plenty of Ordovician fossils in Simpson Creek at the back of the park, so if you feel like hunting for your own fossils, wear closed-toe shoes and feel free to wade in and poke around! Click here for more info.

BONUS! Warren County Children Services will be there with FREE PB&J and FREE BOOKS! Tech-Free Tuesday run rain or shine, but if there is thunder or lightning, we will cancel. Please follow us on Facebook for updates. ~Naturalist Shannon 
SPECIES SPOTLIGHT: PAW PAWS
Tying in with this week's pre-historic FOSSIL theme, learn a little about the Paw Paw tree in our featured Species Spotlight by Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Dave Woehr. There is fossil evidence of this species dating back millions of years, and it was a favorite food of now-extinct megafauna like mastodons and giant sloths!

SPONSORS WANTED!
As our community outreach programs grow, we are looking for prizes for kids who participate in our summer programs. We would love to help promote your organization through our Tech-Free Tuesdays and 100-Hours Outside Summer Challenge! For the past several years, Blooms and Berries Farm Market has graciously donated "Fall on the Farm" passes to their awesome autumn festival, and Loveland Canoe and Kayak has provided a family canoe trip on the river for our grand prize. We aim for prizes that contribute to our goal of getting kids unplugged and outdoors!
