Audubon in Central Ohio
Join us as we tour the Dawes Arboretum Prairies and Dutch Fork Wetland with Dawes Botanist David Brandenburg. We will meet at the parking lot (watch for Columbus Audubon signs) and spend the morning with David to learn about summer plants.
Experts on dragonflies and butterflies and also will be with us:
Tom Schultz is Professor of Biology at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. One of his areas of active research addresses the often complex relationships between an insect's morphology (such as color patterns) and its behavior. Dr. Schultz is a noted authority on dragonflies and damselflies, and he routinely brings his students on field trips to The Dawes Arboretum.
Bobbi Meldahl has been a volunteer at The Dawes Arboretum for 23 years, and for half that time she has been coordinating the Butterfly Monitoring Program, sponsored by The Ohio Lepidopterists, the Ohio Biological Survey, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. As the resident butterfly specialist, Bobbi continues to collect reports for new species at the Dutch Fork Wetlands and elsewhere at Dawes.
Here's a comment from a participant in our May trip to Dawes: I...thoroughly enjoyed the program. Isn't Dave Brandenburg great?! A walking encyclopedia and nice guy at the same time. Between his plant info and your directing us to the birds, it kind of felt like Christmas. So will it be Christmas in August? Come find out!Bring lunch, water and sunscreen and be ready for an amazing day!
