Protecting and Preserving Wetlands
Early settlers on this continent found the forests and grasslands interspersed with swamps, ponds, and marshes. But now 55% of America's wetlands have been drained and we still lose more than 400,000 acres of wetlands every year.

Although born on an island surrounded by warm Pacific waters, Kani Meyer migrates every insufferable Cincinnati summer to another island surrounded by cold Atlantic waters. Swan’s Island lies off Acadia National Park in Maine and offers a wonderful insight into not only island cultural life but a rich and varied natural history. Mitigated by fog and sunshine, mosses and lichens carpet the forest floor while blueberries and hay-scented ferns fill sunny meadows. And, of course, pink granite ledges and cobble beaches fringe the shore….then there are those lobsters!

Oxbow Inc. Field Trip & Events
Sunday, November 23, 2014, 8:00 a.m.
Where: Meet at 8:00 a.m. in the upper Oxbow parking lot at the main entrance to the Oxbow.
Leader: Joe Bens, (513) 353-4229, email@example.com
Some people may think of November as a cold and dreary month but I would disagree. I think late autumn is a beautiful time of the year and the subtle hues of the landscape interspersed with brilliant fall colors offer up a stark beauty. It will be against this backdrop that our trip leader Joe Bens will lead this morning visit to the Oxbow. Joe is an exceptional naturalist and expert birder and will surely find a diverse number of seasonal birds. When birders and naturalists think of the Oxbow during November the first thing that usually comes to mind is waterfowl. The peak of fall waterfowl migration occurs in our region during November and the Oxbow offers a great refuge for them.
