PENINSULA, Ohio – Help children learn about nature while enjoying a great evening out. The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park will host its 12th annual Clambake and Auction on Sunday, September 23 at 4:00 p.m. The fun takes place at the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center (CVEEC), 3675 Oak Hill Drive in Peninsula.
The Clambake raises money to help children attend the CVEEC’S four-day, three-night residential program. Organizers say the program is the first real exposure to nature for some of the kids.
“Many of the children we serve don’t have opportunities to encounter the natural world first hand,” said Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park CEO Deb Yandala. “Hearing an owl call at night, seeing a beaver in a pond, finding a salamander under a rock—these are magical experiences for children. Those that enjoy our clambake help make these experiences possible.”
Tickets are $185 per person and include:
- Refreshing cocktails and savory hors d’oeuvres
- Live music entertainment
- Full clam and lobster bake
- Exceptional live auction items and a 50/50 raffle
- Valet parking
For $250, guests will enjoy the above plus have their name listed in the program. Tickets may be purchased now through September 12 by calling 330-657-2909 ext. 222.
