  • May 20th 8:30am – Field Trip – Beech City Dam and Wildlife Area Walk and Drive – Meet at the Beach City Dam parking lot 8:30am. Walk begins 9:00am. Followed by Lunch at the Dam (bring your own sack lunch).

    June 2nd 9:00am – Bird Walk – Metzger Park – This bird walk has become a Canton Audubon tradition since we sponsored the erection of the sign on June 14, 2008. A new sign was placed last year since the original was showing its age. The sign explains why the Red-winged blackbird, Savannah Sparrow, Bobolink, and Eastern Meadowlark appear on the sign. Metzger Park is located on South Nickel Plate Avenue, just south of Louisville High School.

    June 9th 9:30am – Stark Parks Wildlife Conservation Center Grand Opening –  This newest facility of Stark Parks will hold its “hard grand opening” with information and tours of the new rehabilitation facility today. Since there will be animals undergoing rehabilitation, the entire facility WILL NOT be open to the public because the federal and state permits do not allow public in those areas while animals are undergoing treatment.

    June 20th 4:30pm – Canton Audubon Society “Picnic in the Park”. Join us for our traditional “end of the previous fiscal year/beginning of the new fiscal year picnic at the Stark County Park District’s Picnic Pavilion (on your right as you approach 1st parking area) at the Perry-Sippo/Exploration Gateway facility. We can celebrate the start of our 57th year as an organization.  You can join those interested in a 4:30 p.m. bird walk, followed by the covered dish/potluck dinner beginning at 6 p.m. It will be followed by fellowship and/or another bird walk – whatever you wish.

    June 21st – 5:30pm – “Wild Night for Wildlife – Summer Solstice Soiree” –  Friends of Stark Parks Fundraiser. On the outside patio downstairs at Exploration Gateway. See Newletter for additional details.
