Explore the Outdoors Kickoff was a success!May 14, 2008
We asked member Sharon Tinianow from COSI for an update on all the great programming going on there. Here’s her list:
– The COSI Prairie in Big Science Park is a restoration of the native prairie habitat that once existed in central Ohio. In fact, COSI is situated on a bend in the Scioto River that was labeled “big prairie” on maps from the early 1800’s. A gravel path draws visitors into the prairie where they are immersed in tall grasses and beautiful flowers that provide habitat for a variety of insects, birds, and spiders. You never know what you will find in the prairie!
– The Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Program – COSI is hosting two of the training sessions for adults who will be certified to conduct naturalist programs in area parks, the Columbus Zoo, and various events.
– Programs for kids and teachers! Visit the COSI website, www.cosi.org, and click on the Educators tab to learn about workshops being offered this summer
– Watershed exhibition – COSI is developing a watershed exhibition that will open by the end of 2008. More information will be available on the website later this year.
