  • Instruction and supplies for making a nature-inspired picture frame from natural materials (NOT taken from Cuyahoga Valley National Park).

Proceeds will directly support Conservancy programs and initiatives, and Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Important Details

Due to the use of a hot glue gun, this program is recommended for ages 12 and up. Children under 18 should still have adult supervision when using a glue gun. No minors can attend without a parent or guardian who is also registered for the event.

Although we LOVE to see you exploring CVNP with your pet, we are requesting that you leave your pets at home.

Event Location

This event will take place in the central area of the park. Directions and exact location will be emailed to you after registering. The lot is paved and visitors follow paved pathways to the shelter. The lot has 2 limited-mobility parking spots right by the shelter. Restrooms with flush toilets are available year-round.

COVID Safety Guidelines

At this time, while community levels of COVID-19 are low, you are not required to wear a mask at Conservancy events. We ask that you still respect personal space and understand that some individuals may choose to wear a mask for personal reasons. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID, please stay home. We will continue to monitor community levels using the CDC’s new tool and may require masks again if transmission rates go up.

***If you or someone in your group have a compromised immune system and need our staff to wear masks or use additional PPE, please contact us and we will arrange appropriate accommodations.***

Refunds will be offered in the case of cancellations due to COVID concerns.
