Field Trip, Saturday, March 24, 2018: Shaker Trace Wetlands

2018/03/15

Shaker Trace Wetlands, located near the village of New Haven in northern Hamilton County, is part of Miami-Whitewater Forest, a Hamilton County Park.

It features a nice observation deck and primitive trails. The wetlands are surrounded by fields, which the Park District is in the process of converting from cropland to prairie. Located just a thirty-minute drive south of Oxford, it is part of a growing wildlife corridor that also includes the Fernald Preserve. We will be looking for ducks, shorebirds, and other water and marsh species, as well as raptors. Expert birder Bill Wilson will lead this outing.

We 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.
