As fall migration of birds intensifies and reports by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service of the extinction of 23 birds & other species grab headlines, the Canton Audubon Society is sponsoring an accessible birding field trip to at Mt. Union University's Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center, 16146 Daniel St NE, Minerva (south of Alliance) on Sat., Oct. 23 beginning at 8 a.m., along a paved trail and boardwalk. The outing leader will be Chuck McClaugherty, retired Mt. Union professor. The site has accessible restrooms, handicapped parking, lots of shade, and an accessible Nature Center. A few binoculars and field guides will be available on loan, but participants can enjoy the outing without them, or may bring their own. Canton Audubon Society newsletters will be available.
The Canton Audubon Society is dedicated to welcoming every one of all races, ethnicities, religions, nationalities, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities. To accomplish this the local organization will identify obstacles and improve opportunities for diverse audiences to pursue nature activities.
