Looking for a volunteer opportunity or just itching to get outside and enjoy the fall weather? Well, here’s your chance! Join us on Saturday, November 9th for a work day at Columbus Audubon’s Calamus Swamp. We will be cleaning up the prairie, cutting back invasive honeysuckle, working on the boardwalk, and anything else we can come up with.
We’ll meet at 10:00 am at the Calamus Swamp parking lot — or whenever you can get there. Be sure to wear muck boots or other mud-resistant footwear and dress warmly. Please bring your own work gloves, and feel free to bring clippers although we will have some on-site. Snacks and drinks will be provided. We expect to be there until mid-afternoon. If you can join us or would like more information, contact Allison Boehler at 614-403-9588, or send a message using the form below.
We have scheduled a back-up “rain date” for November 23rd, but only for heavy rain or extreme weather.
Directions: From Columbus, take route 315 S and follow the signs toward Cincinnati. This will become I-71 S. Take the exit for SR 104/Frank Road and turn right onto Frank Road, then right onto SR 104 S/Jackson Pike. Follow SR 104 for just short of 24 miles and you will come to the intersection of SR 104 and US 22 (you will see the Goody Nook on your left). Continue through the intersection and the entrance to Calamus Swamp is just past a small stand of trees on your left; you will see a gravel parking lot.
