PENINSULA, Ohio (Monday, August 27, 2012) - The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park continues its monthly Dinner in the Valley series in September with a meal inspired by French-Canadian cuisine followed by the season's first Cuyahoga Valley Heritage Series concert. Each month, the Conservancy's Dinner in the Valley features Chef Larkin Rogers, who creates a delightful meal hosted at one of Cuyahoga Valley National Park's extraordinary venues.

On Friday, September 14, the delicious Dinner in the Valley meal will be followed by a lively concert by Vishten at Happy Days Lodge. The members of Vishten have been touring their brand of new-traditional Acadian music, with a sound that is essentially Celtic, but the songs are French. The evening's events begin at 6:00 p.m.

Reservations are required and are being taken through Friday, September 7. Call 330-657-2796 ext. 121 for reservations. Pricing is $40 for members, $45 for non-members, and $12 for children ages 5-12. Price includes dinner, dessert and concert ticket. Learn more at www.conservancyforcvnp.org.

November is the time to be on the lookout for bald eagles performing aerial courtship displays. Once eagles have selected each other, they plunge through the air in very high dives, locking their talons and breaking apart just when it looks as though they will crash to the ground.
