If you have been looking for a new exercise routine or simply need a good excuse to get outside, DBWP will now be holding regular, guided hikes of the Doan Brook gorge. Free hikes will accommodate all abilities and will run rain or shine (except for thunderstorms). Sturdy footwear is highly recommended. Meet hike leaders, Kate Leone and John Reebel, at the main entrance to the Fairhill Partners building (12200 Fairhill Road, 44120). The group will leave promptly.

Doan Brook Photo Hike with David Perelman-Hall

October 20 from 9 am - 12 pm

Our annual Doan Brook photography hike gives aspiring photographers a chance to take in the autumnal beauty of the Doan Brook gorge and get in some practice with experienced, local photographer David Perelman-Hall. Participants will meet at the western end of Lower Shaker Lake by the bridge near Coventry and North Park at 9 am. The session will conclude at 12 pm. Be sure to bring your camera, dress for the weather, and wear comfortable footwear for the hike. A $25 donation will be collected in cash or check on the day of the event. Advanced registration is required. Register online at www.doanbrookpartnership.org or by contacting Andrew at 216-325-7781 or klooster@doanbrookpartnership.org.

An optional digital photography workshop will be available to those who participated in the photo hike on Tuesday, October 23 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. It will be held at the Artful Cleveland studio space in the Coventry Building and will be free of charge.


Depaving and Planting at Morning Star Baptist Church

October 20 from 8 am - 2 pm

 Join Cuyahoga River Restoration, LAND Studio, St. Lukes Foundation, Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District, and Doan Brook Watershed Partnership for a volunteer work day to remove some impervious pavement in the Doan Brook watershed and replace it with greenery. One of the primary sources of contaminants that flow into the Doan Brook and subsequently Lake Erie is storm water runoff, and a major contributing factor to storm water runoff is the amount of impervious surface area in our communities in the form of roadways, parking lots, and buildings. We will be working with Morning Star Baptist Church in Buckeye-Woodhill (10250 Shaker Blvd., Cleveland) to depave a strip of their parking lot, fill the depaved areas with soil, and plant native trees and shrubs in these new beds. All tools and necessary training will be provided, along with lunch, refreshments, and t-shirts.

Register by October 15 by emailing info@cuyahogariver.org or by calling 216-241-2414 x610 and leaving a message.
