Outdoor Adventure Clubs returned to the Cincinnati Nature Center in November for our yearly hiking adventure. As always, the Nature Center provided our students the opportunity to discover beautifully preserved trails, creeks, and fields. This year, however, adventurers’ eyes turned from the trails to the tree tops as we explored birding for the first time. Students were equipped with binoculars and birding books to assist their efforts in spotting and identifying the Nature Center’s feathered friends.
Thanks to Heather Spanbauer and her ornithologist friends, student hikers were also accompanied by birding experts to help guide and inform their findings. As Outdoor Adventure Clubs continues to grow, we greatly appreciate the efforts of partners, like Heather, who help diversify our activities to engage students with new outdoor recreational activities.
