Green bus tours start this week

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 “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, 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.
