  • Did you know that June 21, the first day of summer, is also International Go Skateboarding Day? Millions across the globe will thrash. So will I.
  • The Ohio Department of Natural Resources will celebrate the state parks' 60 anniversary by offering a 60-percent discount on camping sites from April 19-23. Learn more here.
  • Great Lakes Brewing said its new beer, Grassroots, will debut at Picture This 2009, the citywide Earth Day initiative, which is hosting a celebration in Goodale Park on Sunday, April 19. Volunteer and party details here.
  • This weekend, plan on being outside. One idea: Wade through the creek at Battelle-Darby Creek Metro Park at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 11. Naturalists will lead you into the lovely waterway in search of small, brightly colored fish known as darters.
