Come explore the natural world with Cleveland Metroparks through the �Saturday Night Specials� at North Chagrin Nature Center.
Spend Saturday evenings in February from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on free armchair journeys and experience the marvels of nature at the following special presentations:
The Great Smoky Mountains
Professional nature photographer Gary Meszaros will take visitors on a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains to examine the animals and plants that inhabit this most-visited U.S. national park.
Join Naturalist Min Keung on her travels to Africa in search of the big five: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalo. She'll share adventures from her recent safari and recount lessons she learned along the way.
Nature Through a Close-Up Lens
Beginning with the first wildflowers and concluding with the winter's snow and ice, photographer Bruce Mack takes the viewers on a journey through the seasons, examining the smaller, often overlooked aspects of the natural world.
Exploring Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago are dream destinations for nature lovers. Join Dr. Ami Horowitz on his visit to these Caribbean Islands, visiting birding sites like Asa Wright Nature Center, swamps and pristine beaches, and exploring the flora and fauna of the islands
The Arabian Bee
Most of the world's honey comes from apis mellifera, however some of Arabia's honey comes from apis floera. This is a smaller bee, and is more colorful than its larger cousin. Muhammed Hassanali's presentation focuses on the behavioral differences between the species and how these differences have led to different apiculture techniques.
North Chagrin Nature Center is located off Buttermilk Falls Parkway, off the Sunset Lane entrance of North Chagrin Reservation, off SOM Center Road/Route 91 in Mayfield Village.
