Peninsula -The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park is pleased to announce its 16th annual Clambake celebration, a fundraiser for the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center in the national park.

Guests will enjoy a memorable evening of fine dining, music, and good company--complete with a clam and lobster bake, a 50/50 raffle, and a live auction. This year's auction packages feature one-of-a-kind park experiences, including a cooking class with Conservancy Chef Larkin Rogers and an ice cream social at the Ledges or Octagon shelter.

The CVEEC, which is operated as a partnership between the National Park Service and the Conservancy, brings over 9,000 children annually to the national park--some for the first time--for a variety of academic and recreational programs. Children get to go hiking, see wildlife and do science experiments in the natural setting of Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Proceeds from Clambake go directly to the CVEEC to support scholarships and other critical program funding for students who attend residential programs, summer camp, Junior Ranger day programs and other events at the Center.

Clambake takes place at the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center (3675 Oak Hill Drive, Peninsula, OH 44246) on Sept. 18 from 4 to 9 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.conservancyforcvnp.org/clambake
