Location: Lucia S. Nash Preserve, 16429 Snow Rd, Burton, OH 44021. Park Map
Featured Species: Sandhill Crane and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
Notes: Owned by the Ohio Nature Conservancy, this preserve opened in Summer 2020 and no historical eBird data exists for the month of April. Let's change that! You can walk the Barbara A.

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.
