Ivy Tech hosting Saturday nature walk at Touch the Earth

Ivy Tech Community College Columbus biology professors are continuing their series of nature hikes to educate residents about their natural environment.

The next hike will be Saturday at the Touch the Earth Natural Area west of Columbus. That is on North Country Club Road just south of State Road 46.

Ivy Tech Columbus faculty member Dr. Tom Sobat will lead the hike, focusing on exploring the network of trails within the Sycamore Land Trust property. All trails on the property are listed as “easy.”

Hikers will meet at 10 a.m. in the morning.

If you are planning to take part and have binoculars, you should bring them. The college will have some sets on hand you can use.

The hike is open to the public, and you are invited to attend. You should dress appropriately for the outdoors and the weather.
