Bird Is the Word: Walk Is in Secrest on Aug. 13

August 1, 2011

WOOSTER, Ohio -- What’s in the air in Secrest Arboretum?

See for yourself when the 120-acre plant collection, part of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, holds its next free Leisure Birding Walk. It’s on Aug. 13 from 9-11 a.m.

Members of the Greater Mohican Audubon Society will lead the program, which is a casual hike to see, hear and identify birds. Past walks have turned up some three dozen species or more, including bluebirds, chickadees, cardinals and red-tailed hawks.

Meet at the arboretum’s Seaman Orientation Plaza, about 1.7 miles from OARDC’s main entrance at 1680 Madison Ave. in Wooster. Signs on the campus will direct you to the arboretum.

For more information, call 330-464-2148.
