Oglebay Institute was formed in 1930 when a group of like-minded citizens, armed with the vision and the philanthropy of the Oglebay family, came together to contribute to the joy of living by creating cultural, education and recreational programming in the city's newly acquired Oglebay Park.
Roots ‘N Shoots preschool nature programs provides adults and their children the opportunity to incorporate nature education and outdoor fun into all seasons. Lessons include a hands-on nature craft, story or song and a short walk, weather permitting, to outdoor areas around the Schrader Center. New themes each week.
Available 9:15-10:15 a.m. or 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Schrader Environmental Educations Center, Oglebay. $14/$12 OI members; $4 for each additional child.
