Hamilton County, Ohio
Forest and Prairie Reclaimed from Invasives
Kirby is over 50 acres of hilly woodlands, prairie, and riparian corridors. Through many hours of work, volunteers have cleared invasive plants and planted native wildflowers. The results provide a convincing demonstration of the value of land restoration. The property also has an 1,800 square foot nature center, education facility, meeting place, and event space.
Protected by Western Wildlife Corridor
Beginning in 2001, WWC assembled the Preserve from some twenty parcels of land obtained by donations, conservation easements, and purchases. The Grant Kirby family donated the central thirty acres and the house that became the Nature Center in 2014. Plans to acquire adjacent properties, doubling the size of the site, are in progress.
