Meet Denis Conover in the upper Oxbow parking lot for a field trip that will focus on the plants that can be found in the Oxbow. Denis is an Oxbow, Inc. advocate and board member, a UC professor, skilled botanist, and naturalist. He has conducted vascular plant surveys in the Oxbow since 1997 and to date has identified over 400 species. Denis has interests in all aspects of nature and will also point out the birds and other wildlife we encounter during our walk.
To reach the Oxbow, take I-275 to the Lawrenceburg, Indiana exit. Turn left onto U.S. 50 at the end of the exit ramp, and proceed about a hundred yards. Turn left onto an unmarked road just past the Circle K gas station. Turn right at the “T” intersection, then left to the meeting spot at the next “T”.
