Explore Johnson Hills Park, 7950 Bridle Rd, as a family.  Go on a park scavenger hunt or discover the new Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trail™.  Ranger Rick® and his pals went geocaching and left behind a trail for you to follow.  

If you have not heard of Ranger Rick and the magazine named after him, here's some information.  The magazines, sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation, attempts to encourage the interest and exploration of animals and nature.and encourage the protection of animals for the future.  In addition to the two magazines for different age groups, that have started to help kids explore the parks they visit through Geocaching.

What is geocaching?  Geocaching uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) or a smartphone to follow the places on a trail that lead to clues about the positions.  Each participant is given a special Ranger Rick Passport.  When you get to each GPS position, you look around for something out of the ordinary.  When you open up the box, you will find a clue inside and a stamp for recording the findings.  Sometimes, people add treasures to the box in trade for a treasure already inside.  At the end, you can go to to check your answers.

Please dress for the weather and feel free to bring a flashlight!

Summer Camps to Explore at the Carnegie Center

by The Cincinnati Team

​​Carnegie Center of Columbia Tusculum Summer Camps  

The Carnegie Center, located in Columbia Tusculum, is one of the many donated over the years by Andrew Carnegie. It was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Samuel Hannaford. The Beaux Arts building has large, arched windows, 22-foot ceilings, patterned wood floors and is flooded with light. It was a public library until 1959 and is now directed by the Columbia Tusculum Neighborhood Association.

Partly due to a donation from Artsworks, they are bringing many activities and summer camps to the area this summer.  There is something for almost any interest.  Consider summer chess, salsa, island, or hip hop dancing, Hindu arts and movement, or Nigerian Drumming.  The Art Academy is teaching classes in Narrative Painting, Comic Drawing, and Figure drawing.  Next year the Playhouse in the Park will also be bringing two of their Off the Hill productions (January 19 and May 18th)

To find out more about the activities that will set the building to humming this year, see their website.
