4-Hers learn about the outdoors

| August 2, 2013

COSHOCTON – The most recent meeting of the 4-H Outdoor Adventure Class had guest presenter Jerrod Allison, Coshocton County Division of Wildlife Officer, teaching about owls.

Allison taught about different owl species, and their different calls and led owl pellet dissections. He also brought along a variety of different animal pelts and taught about other Ohio wildlife.

The 4-H Outdoor Adventure class has been meeting every Tuesday evening since June 4. Its last meeting will be Tuesday, Aug. 6, where members will learn about wild edible plants and participate in a nature scavenger hunt. Other meetings consisted of hiking safety, basic orienteering, obstacle course challenge, dutch oven cooking, invasive species and a photography hike. These classes are all held at Lake Park where they have had a great introduction to outdoor education and nature appreciation.
