Metroparks interpreter to address 'legacy of the land'

Foster Brown, a historical interpreter and naturalist with the Cleveland Metroparks, will speak about “The Legacy of the Land” at the Sept. 17 Bay Village Historical Society potluck dinner program. Brown’s highly acclaimed presentation details the history of the Cleveland Metroparks, including Huntington Reservation in Bay Village.

The Cleveland Metroparks has 16 reservations that make up the famous Emerald Necklace. This presentation takes the audience on a singing tour of many of the reservations to unveil important stories about the Greater Cleveland area. Brown has produced several award-winning music albums about the joys of nature and songs and stories of the Cleveland Metroparks in early Ohio.

All are welcome to attend the dinner free of charge. The historical society provides the main course. Guests are asked to bring a side dish for 10 to share and their own place setting. Reservations are required by phoning Doug Gertz at 440-554-6355 or Cathy Flament at 440-835-4472. Donations are accepted to help defray program costs. The potluck dinner is at 6 p.m., followed by the presentation, at the Bay Village Community House, 303 Cahoon Road.
