Phase 3 Walk with Ken Moran

18 Aug 2024

06:30 pm

Spotted Turtle Trail project manager, Ken Moran, will take you on a tour of James P. Amon Biodiversity Reserve, Beerman Fen and Valle View. See new trails, new boardwalk, new signs, new bridges, new observation decks, new purple martin housing, lots of cool plants, insects, birds, and even a few beaver dams. We will also see the ongoing progress for the parking lot/new entrance and the bird blind.  Finally we will discuss the new trail directional signs,  and 600-ft boardwalk connector between Amon Reserve and Beerman Fen we plan to complete in 2024. As always, Ken will do his best to include some discussions of fauna/flora in these reserves and unique aspects of this complex ecosystem.

This is a free event, but CLICK HERE to reserve your spot!

The total hike will be about 2 miles.

The starting point is Amon Reserve, park on Deercreek Drive
