Field Trip, Saturday, 11/7/2015: Twin Creek Metropark

2015/10/26

The 1000-acre Twin Creek MetroPark is one of Five Rivers MetroParks’ most expansive and untouched parks. This outstanding natural area contains steep, wooded ravines, mature, second-growth and floodplain forest, several managed grasslands, a scenic pond, a scenic hilltop vista, and the beautiful Twin Creek. Natural succession and ideal habitat provide excellent opportunities to observe both plants and wildlife. In addition, the Metropark contains a 2000-year-old Hopewell Culture earthworks. The park is connected by the wooded Twin Creek Corridor to Germantown MetroPark, which we visited last year. A map of the Twin Creek Metropark is at http://www.metroparks.org/Parks/TwinCreek/Maps.aspxhttp://www.metroparks.org/Parks/Germantown/Home.aspx. Our visit to Twin Creek will be hosted by Lauren Asquith, Education Specialist with Five Rivers Metroparks. The trip will leave at 7:30 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s) and return to Oxford in the afternoon. Pack a lunch and bring binoculars if possible.
