Vibrant Places: Kelleys Island Birding & Lakeside Daisy Hike

May 22 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Experience the Land Conservancy’s work first hand by hiking new trails, connecting with family farmers, and exploring cherished keystone properties during our 2019 Vibrant Places series.

Western Reserve Land Conservancy has permanently conserved 130+ acres across five properties on Kelleys Island. Join us to explore some of these amazing properties!

Nestled just a few miles off Ohio’s north coast, many appreciate the rich geologic and natural heritage of Kelleys Island – from glacial grooves reminiscent of the ice age to pockets of globally-rare habitat that support rare and endangered species. For years, conservation partners have worked tirelessly to protect this heritage and provide public access to these natural wonders. Join us to explore several sites with geology and birding experts.

The event will include complimentary lunch. Guests will purchase their own walk-on ferry ride tickets for $20 round-trip. Parking is $10 per space at the ferry launch. Limited carpool transportation options may be provided.
