Naturalist Programs

We hold a variety of nature programs and special events at various Clermont County Parks throughout the year. All programs are free and open to the public unless otherwise specified and will be held rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, cancellation will be posted on our Facebook at least 2 hours before the program is scheduled. Registration is not required unless specified in the program description but we do appreciate knowing if you plan to come.

For everyone’s safety and well-being, Clermont Park District will run all programs and events ​in accordance with current guidelines outlined by the CDC and local health agencies. We ask all program participants to do a self-check-in for COVID-19 symptoms before attending, socially distance during the program, and sanitize your hands upon arrival. Masks are required to be worn while inside all park facilities (restrooms) and outside when you cannot maintain 6 feet between other individuals.

PLEASE NOTE – Until further notice, our public programming schedule has been reduced as our priority is the safety and well-being of all of our guests, volunteers and employees. If you are interested in scheduling a private program, review our additional offerings. Check out our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to see what the naturalists are up to at the moment or email rgreen@clermontcountyohio.gov to speak with a park naturalist.

 

Program Schedule

Naturalist on the Move
Weekly October, 2020

Naturalists are on the Move! Visitors to our Parks and Nature Preserves might spot a naturalist “on the move” answering your questions, observing our parks, providing materials to help you explore, and sharing daily nature observations. Rather than a full length program, we’ll be having short 5-10 minutes conversations with park visitors and only talking with one family at a time to create a safe and comfortable environment. Sometimes we will plan ahead of time while other times we’ll just come out to the parks on a nice day! Check back here or follow our social media pages for updates on when and where we will be this week. During the program, please maintain proper social distancing from staff/other park visitors and wear a mask when social distancing is not possible. Sessions will be canceled in the event of severe weather.

Upcoming Sessions:

Thursday October 8, Pawpaws
Sycamore Park from 2 and 4 p.m.
Pattison Park Lakeside from 6 and 7 p.m.
