Ornithology Hike/ Strawberry Plains Audubon Center

Join OPC Outdoors for a morning at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center, where nature and history meet. Spread out over 2,600 acres of native forests, wetlands and restored native grasslands and wildflower meadows, this former cotton plantation was donated and established as a wildlife sanctuary and in 1998, becoming the National Audubon Society’s largest Audubon Center.

This family friendly event will be a guided 1-2 mile guided saunter representing an introduction to 15 miles of hiking trails that weave through our various native habitats.

We’ll conclude with a brief visit to our MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity & Survivorship) bird-banding station, where our science-staff and trained staff will be banding and recording vital statistics on breeding birds across our different habitats as part of a multi-year research project.

Participants will get a brief experience to see the science and processes involved with bird banding and monitoring, as well as up close views of many remarkable breeding species that call Strawberry Plains home.

Items to bring: a water bottle, closed-toed shoes, sun-protection, BUG SPRAY, and binoculars (suggested, if you have them).

Pollinator Hike @ Sardis Lake

Pollinators are responsible for assisting over 80% of the world's flowering plants. Without them, humans and wildlife wouldn't have much to eat or look at! -US Department of Agriculture

In the United States pollination by honey bees directly or indirectly (e.g., pollination required to produce seeds for the crop) contributed to over $19 billion of crops in 2010. Pollination by other insect pollinators contributed to nearly $10 billion of crops in 2010.

A recent study of the status of pollinators in North America by the National Academy of Sciences found that populations of honey bees (which are not native to North America) and some wild pollinators are declining.  Declines in wild pollinators may be a result of habitat loss and degradation, while declines in managed bees is linked to disease (introduced parasites and pathogens). -US Fish & Wildlife Service

Join OPC Outdoors as we partner with the Army Corps of Engineers at Sardis Lake for a hike as they discuss and identify trees and plants that help pollinators, and how to incorporate planting them at home. 

Items to bring: a water bottle, closed-toed shoes, sun-protection, BUG SPRAY

Ages: Youth and Adults
Date: Saturday, July 20th
Time: 9:30am- 11:00am
Location: Sardis Lake (lower lake area)
Cost: $5
