Big To Do – May 2021

On your marks, get set, bark!
Like many events in 2020, the Toledo Humane Society’s annual “Bark in the Park” fundraiser went virtual last year, raising $75,000. For 2021, the Bark is back, in person, held on Saturday, June 5 at the Shops at Fallen Timbers. Featuring 5K and 10K races as well as a mile-long Family Fun Run, the event will also feature live entertainment, food and games. Still uncomfortable about participating in-person? A virtual event is also available. $25 to run in the 5K, $35 for the 10K. 9am-noon. 3100 Main St., Maumee. 419-891-0705. toledohumane.org

Take flight with the Falconry Experience
The majesty of having a large bird of prey land on your arm is all part of The Falconry Experience, a fundraiser benefiting Nature’s Nursery. Hosted by the Ohio School of Falconry, the Friday May 7 event gives attendees the chance to have up close and personal interactions with various birds, including a trained hawk, and education on the history of falconry. The class runs 90 minutes. $100 per person. 10am & 1pm. Wheeler Farms, 11455 Obee Rd., Whitehouse. 419-877-0060 natures-nursery.org
