Gold-panning event on Sunday


There’s gold in the Vermilion River, and you can try panning for it Sunday.

That’s when Western Reserve Land Conservancy will hold its fourth annual gold-panning event at the Lorain County Metro Parks Vermilion River Reservation.

Panning will be done from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Participants will meet on the Mill Hollow side of the river. Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Come prepared to learn a little bit about the river, have fun and maybe get lucky.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to or call (440) 774-4226.

The Land Conservancy has preserved more than 480 properties and approximately 35,000 acres in northern Ohio. Its mission is to preserve the region’s scenic beauty, rural character and natural resources.
