Old-Growth Forests, Streams, Ponds, and Miles of Trails
This Cincinnati Nature Center property supports sixty-five acres of old-growth forest along its Wildflower and Red Wing Trails, an undisturbed stream community in Avey’s Run, a large glacial conglomerate structure known as Fox Rock, and fifteen miles of hiking paths. There is a visitor center with a gift shop and a new Center for Conservation.
Protected by the Cincinnati Nature Center
Stan Rowe and twelve other founding trustees formed a non-profit association in 1965. They raised funds and purchased the first 175 acres that year. Protected land has grown to the current 1,025 acres through subsequent purchases. Cincinnati Nature Center is the largest member-supported nature center in the country.
