Field Trip, Saturday, October 14, 2017: Rentschler Forest MetroPark


With almost 400 acres, the Rentschler Forest MetroPark includes about a half-mile of frontage along the Great Miami River, acres of woodland, remnants of the old Miami-Erie Canal, a prehistoric Indian earthwork, and a reconstructed wetland. Situated off of Route 4 just east of Hamilton, Rentschler is just a 40-minute drive from Oxford. Expert naturalist Sam Fitton will lead our walk, helping us to locate and identify late migrants and other wildlife.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 afternoon. Pack a lunch if desired and bring binoculars if possible.
