Ivy Tech offering nature hikes

Ivy Tech Community College Columbus biology faculty members are offering free local nature hikes for anyone interested in learning more about the natural environment around them.

The next hike will begin at 7:30 a.m. Feb. 4 along the Driftwood River near Edinburgh. Ivy Tech Columbus faculty member Tom Sobat will lead the hike focusing on winter wonders of the area.

Hikes are open to all community members. Anyone interested in participating can meet at the first paved parking area at the Driftwood State Fishing Area, 8825 S. U.S. 31, Edinburgh. Ivy Tech will have several pairs of binoculars available but encourages anyone who owns binoculars to bring them.
