- October 17th 5:30pm – CAS Pre-Meeting Bird Walk – Meet at the Wildlife Center. Walk will be at the cottonwood wetlands by the new wildlife center.
- October 17th 7:00pm – CAS Regular monthly meeting – Topic will be “Restoration of Sippo Lake and Cottonwood Wetlands” by Nick Morris. The cottonwood wetland at Sippo Lake Park is now a healthy wetland with abundant wildlife. However, only a few years ago, the wetland was almost completely dry and overrun by invasive species. Nick Morris will cover the background of the problem, the problem-solving procedure, and the on-going monitoring that make the wetland what it is today. Nick Morris is the owner of Kestrel Community Solutions; a consulting firm working with public, non-profit, and community-based organizations and an instructor of conservation, sustainability and environmental education at Kent State University. Prior work includes multiple roles at Stark Parks, all focused on education. He earned a B.S. in Biology from Muskingum University, a M.Ed. from Walsh University, and a Ph.D. in Cultural Foundations of Education from Kent State University. His research interests focus on parks, environmental/place-based education, and education for sustainability. Nick lives on a small farm with his wife, children and a menagerie of pigs, chickens, and goats.
