Ashland University’s Environmental Studies Center located at the AU Black Fork Wetlands, 2636 Ashland Road, will continue with its “Naturalist on Duty” events on Saturday, Oct. 13. This month’s event is the final one for the year and will focus on “Insects and Microscopic Life.”
“This ‘Naturalist on Duty’ series provides all with an opportunity to connect with nature in our own backyard,” said Dr. Patricia Saunders, AU associate professor of biology and director of the environmental science program. The informal, come-when-you-can style programs are short and flexible and are being held one Saturday a month this summer and fall. All events are free and open to the public.
Each program provides an opportunity for those of all ages to learn about “Seasonality and Change.” Each open-house style event will be held between 10 a.m. and noon. Those under 16 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
