What you missed- On Sunday Sept 26, 2021
the Society had a family hike at Howards Creek near the UC Field Station in Miami Whitewater Forest. This was part of the Great Outdoor Weekend. Our leaders Wayne Wauligman and Denis Conover led our intrepid group of twenty as we walked up the creek, catching fish, frogs, crayfish and more. The kids were great. Weather- a beautiful sunny 60 morning. For photos, click https://photos.app.goo.gl/TEMRSVfdEaaxJH357
