8780815555_cb854a279c_bOn Sunday, September 11, Audubon Miami Valley launches its 2016-17 field trip season with a visit to Governor Bebb MetroPark, located in southwest Butler County just a twenty-minute drive from Oxford. This 264-acre preserve appeals to nature lovers, history buffs, and outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Acres of woods, meadows, fields, and streams provide ample habitat for wildlife observation and nature study. The park takes its name from William Bebb, 19th Governor of Ohio, whose 1799 birthplace cabin and boyhood home is the centerpiece of the Pioneer Village. A park trail map is at http://www.yourmetroparks.net/governor-bebb-map.pdf.

Experienced horticulturist Dick Munson will lead this trip, which 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 early afternoon.

For more information, or instructions on meeting the trip at the site, send an e-mail to Jim Michael, AMV field trip coordinator, at jmichael@amvohio.org. Participants should pack food if desired and bring binoculars if possible.

Each month between September and June, Audubon Miami Valley sponsors a field trip to a regional site of special interest. All are welcome on AMV field trips. More information is available at https://amvohio.org/events/field-trips/.
