If you've been to Goodyear Heights Metro Park any time during the last few decades, you've probably noticed our old leaf mark on the chimney of the lodge off Newton Street. Our carpenter, Tony, recently created a new one that is more reflective of our brand. The new leaf went up this morning!

Naturalist Joe Malmisur: "Nature is in transition once again. Young are being raised and will soon be leaving. Spring flowers have vanished to be replaced by ferns. Summer wildflowers are just now bursting into color. The days are getting shorter, and soon the landscape will be awash in the yellows, purples, pinks, and whites of goldenrods, sunflowers, asters and iron weed."

We're pleased to announce a new partnership with Akron-Summit County Public Library: PATHWAYS TO POETRY, a three-month display of nature-inspired poems written by local students.

Beginning next week, June 1, three parks will each have five poems posted along trails through August. Locations include F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm (1828 Smith Rd., Akron), Cascade Valley Metro Park / South (354 Sackett Ave., Akron) and Goodyear Heights Metro Park (550 Frazier Ave., Akron).

The subject matter varies from changing seasons to wildlife, and the ages of the authors range from second grade to eighth grade.

Naturalist Joe Malmisur: "To quote a famous revolutionary war hero, 'The cicadas are coming …. the cicadas are coming!' Yes, after a 17-year absence, the cicadas will be emerging in Summit County in late May. The soil temperature must exceed 64 degrees for three days before they will emerge. Adult cicadas do not sting or bite humans, they do not carry diseases, and they are not locusts. Only the male cicadas sing. So get your ear plugs ready. It’s going to be noisy!"

Volunteer Sharon Stump recently discovered this cicada emerging from the ground at Furnace Run Metro Park.

Naturalist Meghan Doran: "Eastern phoebes are back! These busy migrants are thinking about building nests. Phoebes use spider webs, lichens, and mud to glue their homes to buildings or bridges. Keep your eyes open for a gray bird “waving” hello to you with its tail. Firestone Metro Park and Liberty Park Nature Center are great places to begin your search." (photo by volunteer Jerry Cannon)

Naturalist Elizabeth Kresse: "Tis the season for babies! Remember that if you see a baby animal, and no parent, that does not mean they are abandoned. Eastern cottontail rabbits and white-tailed deer leave their young alone during the day to protect them from predators. As baby birds practice flying they are often found on the ground, looking helpless, but the parents are never far and will continue to care for them. When in doubt it is best to leave babies alone. For more information, call 330-865-8065 to speak with a naturalist."
