Callahan Pathway Clean Up

Saturday, October 9th, 9:00 am

We will be spreading woodchips on the newer pathways and cleaning up the older pathways by laying fresh woodchips and pulling weeds. We will have some supplies but we appreciate anyone bringing their own work gloves, trowels for weeding, shovels, rakes, and wheel barrows for moving woodchips.

Lake Erie Metropark Field Trip

Saturday, October 9th, 9:00 am

Lake Erie Metropark is one of the best places for hawk migration in North America if the winds are right. We will be looking for fall migrants including warblers, hawks, ducks, herons, and other marsh birds, and often hundreds of both kinds of kinglets. And its just a great time to get out to enjoy the fall colors. We will traverse woodlands, boardwalks, and observation platforms looking for warblers, other songbirds and migrating water birds.

We will also go down to the boat launch to observe the hawk migration for a while. Some years the number of hawks can be spectacular!
