Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society Field Trip
Event: Field Trip to Brookside Reservation, Cleveland Metroparks
Date & Time: Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.
Location: Cleveland Metroparks Brookside Reservation, John Nagy Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44144 (Please see detailed directions to starting point.) Map
Leaders: Rich and Karen Kassouf
Target Birds: Orchard Oriole, Peregrine Falcon
Description: The route begins by the Ridge Road entrance. Depending on weather, we might see the Yoshino cherry trees in bloom. We will travel beside Big Creek to the Fulton Road bridge where Peregrine Falcons have nested in recent years. For accessibility, this field trip will combine "bird by car" and "parking lot birding"; with stops for some short walks, birder's choice. At the end we will combine our lists.
Directions: Brookside Reservation is just off Ridge Road, at John Nagy Blvd. From I-480, go to the Ridge Road exit. Follow Ridge Road north about 1.7 miles. You will pass Biddulph Ave. and Memphis Ave. Look for John Nagy Blvd. on
the right. There is a Metroparks sign. Turn right onto John Nagy Blvd. We will meet not far from the entrance, where the road has very wide shoulders for parking. Park in the vicinity of small cherry trees.
Additional Notes: See the Cleveland Metroparks Brookside Reservation Map HERE. For parking and starting point: check out the Google Map link to 'John Nagy Blvd' HERE The place to meet is very close to the Ridge Rd. entrance on John Nagy Blvd. You come in off Ridge Rd. Go a short distance and you see the small cherry trees on both sides of the road. The road is wide there with an extra lane on each side for parking. If you zoom the maps you can see where this occurs. On the satellite view if you drag so that you can see John Nagy Blvd east of Ridge Rd, find the area where you can see a very regular row of small trees on each side of the road.
