Winter Photo Safari and Backyard Bird Count

This event is sponsored by the Environmental Education Collaborative as part of an ongoing process to promote an appreciation and stewardship for Cleveland?s ecological systems and natural resources.

Plan to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled tour, so you can sign your waiver and receive additional information. Hot Chocolate will be available at the CLSP office (begin tour here). Bird hikes and Photo Safaris at 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm. Photos from the event will be displayed at the new Cleveland Lakefront State Park Exploration Station in March.

Come experience the city of Cleveland?s only nature preserve along the shore of Lake Erie. You will have a chance to look for native Ohio plants, trees and animals. Stunning, unique views of the Cleveland skyline as well as a most unusual opportunity to access the lakefront, which is closed to the public at other times, will be yours. The Nature Preserve has over 280 of Ohio's 431 identified bird species - this is your chance to explore. With the onset of spring and fall migrations take this great opportunity to learn about plants that thrive and support an abundance of wildlife.
