Russ Gibson in Concert
Saturday, September 14, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Seitz Family Pavilion, 1/8 mile north of 14321 Road 7L, Pandora
Russ Gibson is a veteran performer of festivals, fairs, corporate events, parks and the Bluebird Café in Nashville. He is a story teller, songwriter, outdoor photographer and a published outdoor writer. His songs strike a common chord in listeners of all ages and are appropriate for audiences of all ages.

Russ is a native of Cleveland but for the past 30 years has called Delaware, Ohio, his home. He is retired from 12 years with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and is also a 25 year veteran of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, having worked with Ohio’s State Parks, the Divisions of Natural Areas and Preserves, Recycling and Mineral
Resources Management. He has committed his life to improving the environment in which we live, serving as a state park ranger, preserve manager, and statewide program administrator. In addition to his visit with The Quarry Farm, Russ has performed at several state parks, Red, White and Boom, the Columbus Music in the Air series, the Columbus Arts Festival and other venues.

While enjoying Gibson’s guitar and vocals perform a range of genres, sample a vegetarian and vegan feast prepared by our own Steven Coburn-Griffis. This event is not ticketed, but tax-deductible donations are welcome. You may donate securely at http://www.thequarryfarm.org or with cash or check the day of the concert.

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.
