Friday, March 22, 6 to 7 p.m. & Saturday, April 6, 7 to 8 p.m.
Meet in Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you’ll be familiar with the game of Quidditch and the round, winged Golden Snitch that players must catch to win. Join us for an evening hike where we will listen for the whistling wings of nature’s own Golden Snitch—the American Woodcock. We may also spot emerging wildflowers, flocks of wild turkeys and migrating turkey vultures. Preregister the day before each walk by calling 419-384-7195 or by emailing thequarryfarm@gmail.com.

Vernal Pool Watch
Saturday, April 13, 5 to 6 p.m. & Saturday, April 20, 9 to10 a.m.
Meet in Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
Vernal pools are the spring wetlands that are the nurseries for amazing wildlife. Join us as we collect water samples from the quarry wetland to look for salamander nymphs, fairy shrimp and beetle larvae. We’ll also turn over leaves to see if we can find adult salamanders. Preregister the Friday before each watch by calling 419-384-7195 or by emailing thequarryfarm@gmail.com.

Wildflowers & Feathered Wings
Sunday, May 19, 2 to 4 p.m.
Meet in Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
Walk the trails with us and look low for spring wildflowers, and look up for birds who fly overhead. We may look somewhere in between ground and sky for nesting woodducks. Preregister by Friday, May 17 at 12 p.m. by calling 419-384-7195 or by emailing thequarryfarm@gmail.com.

Spring Family Day
Saturday, June 15, 1 to 4 p.m.
Bring yourself, friends and family for an afternoon of fun in the gardens, woods and wetlands. Make a walking staff and take it with you along the trails to count butterflies and Blanchard’s cricket frogs and visit residents of the farm animal sanctuary. Admission is free and no registration is required. Tax-deductible donations are welcome.

6th Annual Quarry Farm Jam
Saturday, September 7, 2019, 6 to 9 p.m.
Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
Whether you play an instrument like a virtuoso or just like to pretend, sing along or listen, spend a sweet late summer evening with music under the big red roof alongside the calls from the nature preserve. There will be cookies, too.

The Quarry Farm 4th Annual 5K
Saturday, October 5, 2019
The Quarry Farm 5K 2019 follows an easy (just two sloping hills!) out-and-back rural course that takes participants past a historic bridge, two scenic creeks to a rest halfway and back to the finish line at Red Fox Cabin. Participants will have the option of receiving a custom color 5K shirt OR a white t-shirt with The Quarry Farm logo on the chest. Runners/walkers wearing the white shirt will be ‘painted’ at various stations along the route. We will use liquid, non-toxic paints that will cool you down as you enjoy this colorful experience. Registration opens July 2019.

*******************************************************************

All 5K proceeds from donations and registrations (when required) further the goal and mission of The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm to provide the opportunity for people of all ages to increase their understanding of the natural environment of Northwest Ohio and to interact with their fellow inhabitants in a sustainable manner.
