Clermont County, Ohio
A Rescued Historic Farm With Varied Habitats
This 190-acre preserve, in the City of Milford, conserves streams, floodplain and upland forests, grasslands planted with prairie species, and ephemeral and riparian wetlands. The site borders over a mile of the East Fork of the Little Miami River. Five miles of trails crisscross the property. Visitors will also find a community garden, historic farm buildings, and an education center.
Protected by Valley View Foundation
Beginning in 2002, a group of concerned citizens formed a non-profit group and raised over $4 million to purchase the property. Volunteers are restoring and preserving the structures, former farmland and its surrounding tracts of woods.
