Field Trip, Saturday, March 28, 2015: EcOhio Wetlands

2015/03/10

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s 600-acre property, located north of downtown Mason, Ohio, is a refuge for plants and wildlife. Since the early 2000’s, the Zoo’s conservation efforts have reclaimed thirty acres of wetlands and have brought 125 bird species and 200 native plants to the former Bowyer Farm. Now known as EcOhio Wetlands, the property comprises wetland, prairie and forest areas.  There are no paved trails, so sturdy shoes and long pants are recommended. This field trip will leave at 7:30 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s), arrive at the site in about an hour, and return to Oxford in the afternoon. We will be met at the property by our guide, Brian F. Jorg, Manager of the Native Plant Program at the Cincinnati Zoo. Pack a lunch and bring binoculars if possible
