1:00 – 3:00 p.m. (note alternate time)
Only 5 spaces remain to join the Foundation on a back-country adventure to the heron nesting area located on land owned by the City of Akron and viewable from Burton Wetlands Nature Preserve. This is a special excursion for the hearty hiker that can only take place off-season when nests are not occupied. This is an off-trail, rugged two-mile hike to the nesting site and back. Terrain is not hilly, but may be uneven, wet and muddy. Dress for the weather and wear hiking boots.
Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 27 people (9 or fewer with each naturalist). Request your spot by emailing the Foundation at admin@
Our group will meet in the parking lot and practice social distancing. We will split into teams of 10 or fewer to hike. Please:
– wear face coverings
– keep distance of 6 feet between you and other walkers
– bring your own water bottle and binoculars if needed

The Foundation for Geauga Parks Explorers Series was established so park lovers may join us each month to explore a different park in Geauga County by boot, bike, paddle, or skis.
