New Group Brings Students to the Great Outdoors

Want to get outdoors? Join the new group from the ENVS Department!

The group, tentatively called “OWU Outdoors” (although suggestions for more exciting names are welcome) exists to help Ohio Wesleyan students, regardless of major, spend time outdoors. We all know more time outside is good for us, but it can be hard to get there, especially when living on a college campus, without a car or in an area unfamiliar to us.

The group took its first trip last weekend, on March 14th, at Highbanks Metro Park. Highbanks is just twenty five minutes or so from campus and has over seven miles of hiking trails. Plus, you might see a bald eagle pair at the overlook!

Students who’d like to join the group can do so by emailing owuenvs@owu.edu. It is free to participate and more outdoor activities will be coming in the near future!
