It's time to put down the game controller and bust out the binoculars: Today's Nature for Kids program at the Firestone Metro Park is for the birds. Among the flying attractions, expect to spot cardinals, blue jays, robins, goldfinches, Canada geese, and blue herons. "It's cute because the younger the kids are, the more excited they get," says naturalist Megan Doran, who leads the walks. On the other hand: "Sometimes the kids get too excited and end up scaring the birds away!" Doran encourages everyone to explore their surroundings in detail. "Firestone is very important for the birds and is a great habitat for all kinds of animals," she says. "There is no telling what you might see." The free walk starts at 11 a.m. on easy-to-moderate terrain. All kids are welcome with an adult; learn more at 330-865-8065 or summitmetroparks.org. Firestone Metro Park is at 40 Axline Ave. in Akron; come to the Coventry Oaks pavilion. — Kelly Maile
