Green Bus Tours were launched last year to provide field trips of natural and cultural historical significance, led by retired LaGrange County Parks interpretive naturalist Scott Beam.
On Thursday, the bus leaves the LaGrange First Church of God at 6:30 a.m. for “Welcome Back Warblers.” Participants will travel to Magee Marsh Wildlife Area in Oak Harbor, Ohio to witness migrating birds.
“The return of migrating warblers is not a trickle, but a flood,” says event information at Eventbrite.com. “There are certain hotspots where they rest before continuing north. The south edge of Lake Erie is the hotspot we are headed for. You are likely to see species of birds you have never seen before, even if you are a seasoned birder.”
The $35 ticket includes lunch.
Green Bus Tours is an eco-tour company over 30 years in the making, says Beam. Some scenes of the evolution of the bright green bus can be seen on the Green Bus Tours Facebook page. Booking is through Facebook, Eventbrite, GreenBusTours@gmail.com or by calling 260-336-2610.
Beam kicked off his new pursuit in November at the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site in Rome City.
Tours will include a walk at Spicer Lake this Saturday; tickets cost $15.
The Green Children’s Museum Bus leaves Lakeland Junior-Senior High School at 7 a.m. on Friday, June 23 for a trip to Indianapolis; tickets cost $45.
There will also be Model T Museum trips to Richmond on July 14 and 22.
