PLANT ECOLOGY AND IDENTIFICATION RIDE ALONG THE LITTLE MIAMI BIKE TRAIL

Sat., Sept 24-Oct. 8, 9 am-12 pm / $100 / Three Classes

Instructor: Andrew Goebel

The meeting locations will be varying spots along the Little Miami bike trail.

Join Andrew Goebel, conservation biologist with the Cincinnati Parks, for a class focused on plant identification and plant ecology. The meeting locations will be varying spots along the Little Miami bike trail. We will bike along the trail stopping periodically to investigate different plants and plant communities both native and invasive. Students will see how contrasting land management approaches lead to distinct outcomes. Each day we will travel about 10 miles. The Little Miami bike trail is a flat and paved bike trail that was converted from an old rail line so it is appropriate for novice cyclists of all ages.

Students need to bring their own bike. A notebook and/or phone with iNaturalist app is recommended for note taking. Water bottle and a snack are recommended.
