Hundreds of people came out to the Town Center in Grove City to experience EcoFest, the annual summertime event that promotes healthy living. In addition to touring the city on a bike ride with Mayor Richard ‘Ike’ Stage, attendees were able to learn the benefits of recycling, shop for local eco-friendly products, and play sports and do crafts with their children in the Kids Zone.

Representatives with the Ohio Wildlife Center brought several animal ambassadors with them to EcoFest. One such animal was Locke, a 10-year-old eastern screech owl. The owl was a big hit with the crowd, especially cousins Kinley Birchfield and Colton Wilhelm.
