What We Learned About Our Community

Today we heard from Jim Meyer of Trail Management who shared about Clermont County’s natural beauty, nature, trails, etc. These include Cincinnati Nature Center, Sycamore Park, Stonelick State Park, Little Miami River, Local Township Parks, farms and backyards.

Natural areas face many problems today. Ohio state parks and nature preserves have had their budgets severely slashed over the last 10 years. As a result, park personnel cannot maintain the trails and natural areas are being shut down and private parties are organizing to maintain and preserve these precious areas. Commercial and residential development and next shopping center continue to pose a threat to natural areas.
