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 be at 10 a.m. today at Touch the Earth Nature Area west of Columbus on North Country Club Road just south of State Road 46.
Ivy Tech Columbus faculty member 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.
The hike is open to the public, and everyone is welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars if they have them; however, the college will have some on hand for participants to use.
