Virtual Outings for June 2021

The Miami Group’s Outings Committee invites you to join us this month for two new Virtual Outings.

Thursday, June 3, 2021, 7:30 PM – Intro to Bird Identification

Join us for an introduction to identifying birds found in our Tristate area. Learn to recognize some of the birds who call this area home year-round and a few who regularly migrate here as well. We will look at photos and listen to the songs of our feathered friends. We will discover the key characteristics to look for in identifying birds. We are lucky to be in an area that has many documented bird species: 350 species in Kentucky, 433 species in Ohio, 413 species in Indiana. Let’s enjoy just a few!

Presented by Beck Van Damme

June 17, 2021, 7:30pm – Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area

Established in 1974 as the first National River and Recreation Area, Big South Fork encompasses 125,000 acres on the Cumberland Plateau. Protecting the free-flowing Big South Fork of the Cumberland River and its tributaries, the area boasts miles of scenic gorges and sandstone bluffs, and is rich with natural and historic features. Outdoor activities include whitewater paddling, rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking, but for this presentation we’ll focus on one of our favorites – backpacking! Join us for a virtual tour of this “Land of Gorges and Arches” located in southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee. Our presentation will provide an overview and history of this unique destination, as well as trip planning tips on trailheads, trails, campsites and our favorite scenic highlights.
