After accepting a position as an interpretive naturalist for Lake Metroparks, I was delighted to start my first day at Earth Day in Penitentiary Glen in Kirtland. Since rocks are my strength, I helped participants select their own special rock to adopt. After selecting a memory rock, families went inside the Nature Center to complete their adoption papers and create features for their Rock Buddy. You got to just dig rocks!
