Kopf Family Reservation Hike
February 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our first-ever excursion to this park near Lake Erie. We will be sure to see and hear a variety of birds and other woodland creature as we traverse two miles or so of paved and unpaved trails.
The Kopf Family Reservation consists of 162 acres of woodlands that are filled with pin oak, red oak, and white oak growing next to shagbark hickory. Maple, elm, ash, cherry, and willow trees also add to the forest’s diversity. Wildlife is plentiful in the forest including fox squirrel, Virginia opossum, and white-tailed deer are seen often. Bird life is abundant as the woodlands are one of the largest intact natural habitats closely bordering the shores of Lake Erie. This provides an important stopover for migrating songbirds preparing to cross the wide expanse of Lake Erie, as well as for many nesting species.
Dogs are welcome. Please wear boots or shoes with traction as paths may be a bit icy.
The trailhead shares a lot with the Avon Lake Public Library, Use the following address or just Avon Lake Public Library for GPS navigation.
