One of our family’s all-time favorite resources is our local Cleveland Metroparks. The Metroparks are also affectionately called the Emerald Necklace as there are parks that were wisely donated and preserved that are like a ring of interconnected parkways and trails that run through the surrounding Cleveland area.
They also have a publication, aptly named Emerald Necklace and my issue just arrived yesterday. If you are in the area, you can explore it online and see all the wonderful opportunities coming up.

Not only is it a great description of the solar cycle, there is also a useful link to the www.spaceweather.com to see when you might see a great show as well.
