So we are the new coordinators for the 2011 ASB trip to Lakemetroparks.   This trip will focus on the environmental issue area along with various snow activities.  Lake Metroparks is a system of parks located in Ohio right below Lake Erie.  We will be staying in a log cabin for the duration of our stay, and yes there is a fire place.  Be sure to follow our blog as we figure out the activities we will be doing during the break.

The Lake Metroparks weather report!

Good afternoon everyone!

Though it is extremely windy and chill here in Boston, what is happening in good ol’ Lake Metroparks? Personally, we’re a bit jealous because they are already seeing some snow! The weather is a little chillier out there because it borders Lake Erie of the great lakes. By the time we drive out to Lake Metroparks in March we’re looking at a high of 46 degrees and a low of 29 degrees so we’ll have to dress warmly!! Who knows, if they see enough snow out there, we’ll be working at the Pine Lodge Ski Center (

That’s all I have for today world. We’ll see you in the New Year!

Peace and ASBLove,
