Nature has a way of softening the grittier, industrial parts yet, not surprisingly, wildlife does find a home here. During this trip, we will locate a variety of birds within different habitats and perhaps find young birds recently out of their nests.
Field Trip to CanalWay Center
Date & Time: Sunday, June 17, 2018 at 8:00am - 11:30pm
Location: CanalWay Center, 4524 E 49th St, Cleveland, OH 44125 Map
Leader: Nancy Howell
Target Species: Nesting Songbirds
Description: As the name of the Reservation says this is part of the Ohio and Erie Canal. But more than that, the Cuyahoga River, forests, fields and a bit of industrial area also make up portions of the park. Nature has a way of softening the grittier, industrial parts yet, not surprisingly, wildlife does find a home here. During this trip, we will locate a variety of birds within different habitats and perhaps find young birds recently out of their nests. Walking will be relatively easy on the all-purpose and towpath trails. There is one hill that will need to be navigated at the beginning and end of the walk. We’ll meet at the CanalWay Center, 4524 E 49th St, Cleveland, OH 44125 in the Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.
Directions: We’ll meet at the CanalWay Center, 4524 E 49th St, Cleveland, OH in the Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks. Take I-77 to the Grant St. exit. Take Grant St. west to E 49 St. Turn left (or South) on E 49 St to Whittlesey Way. Turn right onto Whittlesey Way to parking lot. Walking will be relatively easy on the all purpose and towpath trails. There is one hill that will need to be navigated at the beginning and end of the walk.
