WCAS invites birders to bird at a monthly designated field trip location, share stories to a public digital scrapbook, and participate in online community meet ups.
Event: Virtual Field Trip August 2020
Dates: August 1- 31, 2020
Location: Nimisila Reservoir (Portage Lakes), Green, OH 44319 Map
Featured Bird Species: Purple Martins (dusk), waterfowl (e.g., Mallard), and Great Blue Heron
Description: There are no dedicated walking trails at Nimisila Reservoir, but birding can be easily accomplished from the many parking lots located on both Christman Road (C1, C3, C4, C5, C6, and C7) and South Main Street (SM2 and SM3). From these lots, birders can find tramped down paths to get better access to the water.
Parking Information and Hours here. If parking lot birding isn't a desirable activity, a second option is to enjoy the hiking trails of Portage Lakes State Park and look for our non-migratory/summer birds.
Bird Walk Leader: Michelle Brosius, Director-at-Large and Field Trip Co-Coordinator, WCAS, invites birders to bird at a monthly designated field trip location and share stories to a public digital scrapbook.
How To Contribute to the Scrapbook: During visits, attendees are encouraged to take photographs, draw a picture or create art inspired by what is seen, tally identified species, write down thoughts, create a poem, a Haiku, questions or curiosities about the target species or anything encountered at the location, i.e., bird, plant, butterfly, etc., or anything to do with the experience of visiting the public space. Contributions will be published to the WCAudubon.org website and shared on social media.
Community Meet-Up: Wed Sept 9, 2020 at 7:00 p.m., WCAS Virtual Conference Center. Meet fellow birders, ask questions, and share experiences.
