Chippewa Nature Center’s Dennis Pilaske worked with Mark Szabo, retired from Stony Creek Metropark Nature Center (Michigan), Dan Best, Geauga Park District (Ohio) and Foster Brown, Cleveland Metroparks (Ohio) to produce a 14 song CD of original interpretive music for the National Association of Interpretation’s Region 4. All four of the interpreters craft original songs as vehicles to relate the heritage of their locales, to convey ecological concepts and environmental concerns and tell the stories of their landscape and its people. This cd includes several of Dennis’ songs about maple trees and maple syrup season. These songs have been favorites at Maple Syrup Day for more than five years. Stop at the Nature Center Store and pick one up today!
