Clermont County, Ohio
Woodlands Protecting an Exceptional Stream
The 145-acre James L. and Frances Wilson Nature Preserve contains second-growth riparian and upland woodland. Over three miles of trails traverse the site and provide access to the lower East Fork of the Little Miami River. The stream, which supports a diverse aquatic community, is designated an Exceptional Warmwater Habitat by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Large trees and abundant wildflowers provide food and cover for many types of wildlife.
Protected by Clermont County Park District
The preserve was established in 2009 through the generosity of the Wilsons and a matching grant from the Clean Ohio Fund.
