How can our food choices make a positive impact on the world around us?
�Cleveland Metroparks �Inviting the Planet to Dinner� series was developed to educate and increase the awareness of how tremendously powerful our food choices really are! These choices affect the environment, the rest of the world, as well as our own bodies,� said Bethany Majeski, naturalist at Rocky River Nature Center.
Cleveland Metroparks invites everyone to embark on this journey with a yearlong series of programs at Rocky River Nature Center in Rocky River Reservation:
