The Canton Audubon Society (CAS) is sponsoring two hikes on Saturday, April 24 at 9 a.m., to celebrate the end of Earth Week. Both hikes are open to the public, and hike leaders will help participants identify migrating songbirds and spring flowers. It is recommended that participants bring binoculars and come dressed for the weather, including wearing waterproof shoes, hats, and gloves if the weather is chilly or damp.
One of the hikes will be at the Jackson Bog State Nature Preserve, 7984 Fulton Dr NW, Massillon near Jackson High School, in memory of Alan Dolan, who served as President of the Canton Audubon Society for 30 years. Simultaneously, retired Mt Union University professor Chuck McClaugherty, who serves on the CAS Board of Directors, will lead a hike along the Mahoning Valley Trail in the Alliance area, beginning at the 182 East Gaskill Street parking area.
