Field Trip, Saturday, February 17, 2018: Englewood Metropark

2018/02/11

Englewood MetroPark is one of the largest parks within the Five Rivers Metropark system. At 1,900 acres, it is home to lakes, woodlands, wetlands, meadows, three waterfalls, and more than twenty miles of trails.

With its floodplain forests and wetlands, the Park helps to buffer and protect the Stillwater River, which serves as a focal point of the Park. A remnant swamp forest, accessible by boardwalk, supports an unusual population of trees, including black ash, swamp white oak and pumpkin ash. A brochure, including a map of Englewood Metropark, is at https://www.metroparks.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/MetroParks-Englewood-brochure-03-2016.pdf. Our visit to Englewood will be hosted by Lauren Asquith, Education Specialist with Five Rivers Metroparks.

The trip will leave at 8:00 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street, Oxford, across from McDonald’s) and return to Oxford in the afternoon. Pack food if desired and bring binoculars if possible.
