The Great Outdoor Weekend returns on Sept. 28 and 29, thanks to Green Umbrella. Gather up the gang and head to one of more than 120 opportunities to explore the area’s outdoor offerings — look into the eyes of a live hawk, owl or falcon at Cincinnati Nature Center (4949 Tealtown Road, Milford), or test your skills on the outdoor climbing wall at Winton Woods (10245 Winton Road). The weekend offers plenty of hands-on fun, and a chance to get a little dirty while learning about important environmental initiatives that you can do at home. Best part? It’s all FREE!
