Feathers & Fermentation Tour
Join Wesley Homoya - a native Hoosier, avid birder, tour guide, and conservationist - as we explore nature and enjoy quality adult beverages. Wes’ travels and ornithological employments have allowed him to live and bird in places as varied as Maui, Brazil, the Galapagos, Hungary, SE Asia, and Ecuador.
Tours meet at Ash & Elm Cider Co., where after a short tour and tasting, you can grab cans and growlers of your favorite ciders for the road. Each Feathers and Fermentation tour is specifically designed for the season. Past events have included a hike in Eagle Creek Park, kayaking in Eagle Creek Reservoir and live Birds of Prey demonstration at the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center. After each outing we visit a local Indianapolis brewery (this rotates per outing), then we return to Ash & Elm where you can linger awhile with plenty more cider and food options available.

If full, join the waitlist and we'll open up another bus once the minimum is met.
Calling all lovebirds! Treat a loved one (and/or yourself!) to a very special Valentine's weekend this year. What better way to celebrate the season than by cuddling up close with a hawk or an owl and sipping on hot mulled cider from Ash & Elm?
Starting with a short tour and tasting at the cidery, you'll be able to grab to-go options of your favorite ciders for the road trip to Eagle Creek Park for a live birds of prey presentation and a talk on "The Secret Love Life of Birds" by the fabulous staff of the Ornithology Center. Afterwards, we'll briefly check out the taxidermy displays and bird feeders before getting back on the bus for a visit to a local craft brewery (TBD) to learn about and taste their beer offerings. The tour concludes at Ash & Elm, where you can linger awhile with plenty more cider and food options available.
You do not need to bring binoculars for this event. Of course, dress with layers for the weather and time spent indoors, and consider bringing a water bottle. Bottled waters and ice will be available on the bus. A portion of each ticket sale will support Indiana Audubon Society and the Eagle Creek Foundation.
