Field Trip, Saturday, January 9, 2016: Riverside Natural Area, Hamilton


Riverside Natural Area is located along the Great Miami River in Hamilton, Ohio. It includes a lagoon formed from an old river channel, a small man-made wetland that backs up against the south side of the lagoon, and approximately 130 acres of prairie. There are mulched trails that wind through the north side of the preserve, an observation deck overlooking the lagoon, and a paved access road that leads into the large prairie. In cold weather, the river can be good for waterfowl, and pipits and killdeer can be found along the river’s edge in January. We will be met at the site, in a parking lot off Fairview Avenue, by our guide, Charlie Saunders, an experienced birder who knows the area well. The trip will leave at 8:00 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s) and return to Oxford in the late morning. Most of the field trip will consist of hiking along the river. Bring snacks if desired and binoculars if possible. If you have questions, call Charlie at 513-829-6981.
