Oxbow Winter Walk

Oxbow Inc.’s annual Moonlit Evening Winter Walk will start at 7 p.m. at Shawnee Lookout Golf Course parking lot. This two-hour night walk around Shawnee Lookout Park is a unique opportunity to see what the night woods have to offer. Conducted just two days before a full moon, there should be plenty of moonlight, which means there is a fair chance that owls, deer and flying squirrels will be seen or heard. John Klein will lead the way. The park is normally closed at this time of night but the rangers will have the entrance gates and the restrooms open. Dress warmly. Severe weather will cancel this trip. If you are unsure if the trip is cancelled, call John at 1-513-304-2310.
