Field Trip on Saturday, November 12, 2016: Beavercreek Wetlands

2016/11/05

On Saturday, November 12, the public is invited to join Audubon Miami Valley for a field trip to Beavercreek Wetlands, located on the east side of Dayton. Since its formation in 1988, the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association has facilitated the conservation of over 1700 acres within a wetland corridor along the Big Beaver Creek and Little Beaver Creek. Nancy Bain, a knowledgeable member of the Association’s board of directors, will lead a tour of one or more of the BCWA’s eleven protected properties. Our starting point will be Siebenthaler Fen. This 130-acre preserve features a one-mile trail, an observation deck, and a boardwalk that takes visitors past wet woods, the fen, and Beaver Creek. Since 1988 biologists have identified over 470 wetland plant species here. A map of the BCWA protected properties can be found at http://www.beavercreekwetlands.org/maps/BCWAMapJan2010.pdf.
 

This trip will leave from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s) at 7:30 a.m. and arrive at the Wetlands around 8:45 a.m. Participants will gather for lunch in a nearby restaurant before returning to Oxford. Bring snacks if desired and bring binoculars if possible.

 

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 snacks 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/.
