Learn from author of award-winning book on Ohio’s natural areas
From southern haunts bordering the Ohio River to lakeshore habitats buffering Lake Erie, Ohio is filled with wild landscapes.
Join Jim McCormac of the Ohio Division of Wildlife on Saturday, July 26, for an illustrated presentation in the early afternoon, a hike in the late afternoon, or both! From 1 to 2 p.m. is the photographic journey to Ohio’s best remaining places at The West Woods Nature Center; from 3 to 5 p.m. is the exclusive hike through Burton Wetlands Nature Preserve to examine some of the creatures and plants that make this area so special, or both the talk and the hike!
