Join the Village of Shreve, Ohio, just south of Wooster and home to Ohio’s largest in-land water way the 5,512-acre Killbuck Marsh, on Saturday, March 16, 2013 for the Shreve Migration Sensation. The day centers around the peak spring bird migration and includes self-guided tours with local experts located at Help Stations in the Killbuck Marsh, Shreve Lake, Brown’s Bog, and the Funk Bottoms wildlife area. Cost is just $10.00 per person or $15.00 per family and includes all events, six workshops, and location maps. Visit the many booths in the Birder’s Market Place where you will find a large selection of binoculars, spotting scopes, nature art, books, bird houses and feeders, shirts and hats with the migration logo. In addition to this year’s workshops enjoy these “Sensational” Family-Friendly Activities: Dip-Netting in the marsh for creatures with the Wilderness Center, Akron Zoo’s Live Animal Activities, and a Family Nature Area with games and crafts. The Shreve Library will have “hands on” programs with stories, coloring projects and crafts.
Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. at Shreve Elementary School, 598 North Market Street (State Route 226), Shreve, Ohio 44676. For a complete list of the day’s activities and workshop subjects and presenters visit their website at www.ShreveMigration.org.
Plan on spending the day in the quaint Village of Shreve with its authentic Amish Restaurant and Bakery, old fashioned hardware store and unique shopping. “It’s where good friends get together to enjoy nature!” Call the Wayne County Convention & Visitors Bureau for a brochure on the Migration Sensation and on other great Wayne County attractions at 800-362-6474 or visit them on the web at www.wccvb.com.
