The University of Cincinnati Center for Field Studies is located in the some of the Shaker buildings at the Shaker Trace Wetlands in Miami-Whitewater Forest. The Center blends high-level science with deep-woods know-how through a timeless connection to the great outdoors. Besides being home to college-level courses and research, the Center provides events and educational opportunities for the general public.
Dr. David Lentz, professor of biological sciences and executive director of the Center, will tell us all about the Center, including some of the research that is being conducted there, its importance to our understanding of the natural world, and the activities that are open to Audubon members and the general public.
Audubon programs are held on the third Monday of the month (not including January, July, August or December). We meet at 7:00 p.m. for light refreshments, with the program beginning at 7:30. We meet at the Winton Woods visitor center, located at 10245 Winton Road. To reach the visitor center from I-275, take the Winton Road exit, and go south. Just before the lake, turn right into the park. From the Ronald Reagan Highway, take the Winton Road North exit, and turn right into the park just after the lake.
Note that a Park District auto sticker is required – $3.00 daily or $10.00 annual for Hamilton County residents, or $5.00 daily or $14.00 annual for non-residents.
