Online Field Trip:
Check out High Park
There you’ll find the following listed:Where is that Natural Area on a map?
In the Natural Areas reports above you’ll notice Lat. & Long. co-ordinates.
Cut & paste them into the search bar at Google Maps. (Btw: if you go into “My Maps” you can plot all three, and keep a map of these and other places you’ve visited or would like to.)
- Get handy with the search features at the OMNR's NHIC Natural Areas, and the rest of the OMNR NHIC site too.
- Google maps will help you find and plot natural areas.
- The applications are up to your imagination (I recently looked up & then plotted all "prairie" related areas near Rice Lake, ended up with a detailed road map and plant species and community descriptions = cool & informed field trip.)
