Geauga Park District home

In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.

William Shakespeare knew all about the charm of the season in As You Like It – and so do all of our local wildlife, emerging from winter to go find a mate and make a go of another year!

Speaking of emerging, have you heard about the periodical cicadas? After a whopping 17 years underground, Brood V is gearing up to once again make its amazing, synchronous emergence, invading the eastern half of the state. Learn all about it (and impress your friends later) by watching the video at right, then click here and add your name to the call list to get a call when this incredible phenomenon begins!
