  • Glen reaches out for support

    Trailside Museum staffers Anne Marie Long and Geno Luketic’s mission is to help visitors to know and love the Glen, as well as to protect the preserve and its vulnerable ecology. The museum’s summer hours are from 1 to 7 p.m. Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m.–8 p.m. Saturday–Sunday.

    Fear of snakes is common, but visitors who have held gentle Pepper, the black rat snake who resides at Glen Helen’s Trailside Museum, know that most local snakes are harmless.

  • Watching birds, helping the Glen

    Glen Helen Director Nick Boutis will lead a dawn chorus walk this Saturday, May 10, as part of the daylong Make It Count for the Birds event. The event is the Glen’s biggest fundraiser.

    Eleven months out of the year, Glen Helen Director Nick Boutis likes to sleep in, but in May he rolls out of bed early. That’s the month that migrating birds stop in the Glen and Glen Helen Director Nick Boutis, a bird lover, can be found in the nature preserve with his binoculars even at the crack of dawn, looking up.

    Internationally known magician David Williamson will perform on Saturday, April 26, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., at the Cedarville Opera House in a benefit for the opera house and the Riding Centre.

    It’s a profound experience to participate one-on-one in the sleight-of-hand act of a professional magician. You watch intently as he manipulates a set of coins, making them disappear and reappear with seamless precision.

  • Glen likely to be preserved

    The unveiling of a collection of ancient Native American points and tools donated to Glen Helen 20 years ago may not play like a riveting drama. But talk to natural historian Geoffrey Sea, and he might convince you of quite the opposite.
