Monclova Sand Pits

Buehner Center, 5240 Wilkins Rd, Whitehouse, OH 43571, USA                          Monclova Sand Pits

This lesser known area of Oak Openings Metropark has plenty to offer in the way of flora as well as fauna. Blooming Yellow-eyed Grass, Colic Root, club mosses, Sundews, and Milkwort are some of the plants we should find. Dragonflies and butterflies abound, as well as many other interesting insects including the Antenna-waving Wasp. We may try to do some netting of critters, land and aquatic, for closer inspection. Meet trip leader Elliot Tramer at the Buehner Nature Center, Oak Openings Metropark at 9:00 a.m.
