Spring Wildflower Walks at
As Spring approaches and nature brings new life to our landscapes, most of us will be ready for a hike or two. We are offering a series of wildflower hikes on properties owned and managed by Western Wildlife Corridor, an organization with a mission to protect, restore, and preserve natural habitat, and to provide education to foster connections with nature. WWC nature preserves offer some of the best places in Hamilton County to view our spectacular native Ohio wildflowers. We could see Cut-leaved Toothwort, Sessile and Drooping Trillium, Wild Ginger, Woodland Poppy, Blue-eyed Mary, Greek Valerian, Dutchman’s Breeches, Wild Hyacinth, Miami Mist, Fernleaf Phacelia and many more.
Hikes are scheduled in various preserves on the following dates: April 10 – Delshire preserve, April 16 – Kirby preserve, April 22 – Bender Mountain, April 25 – Buckeye Trace preserve, May 22 – Kirby preserve (we’ll look for migrant warblers too). The number of attendees is limited per walk* so we are asking that everyone please register using Evenbrite to select your time and place!
The Western Wildlife Corridor, Inc. is a Cincinnati‐based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit nature conservancy land trust formed in 1992. Our mission includes the protection of natural habitat along the Ohio River Valley from the Mill Creek to the Indiana line, and we own and manage nature preserves totaling nearly 200 acres. Consider joining us and becoming a member!
*Due to current covid concerns and to keep everyone safe, we will require registration so that we can limit the number of people on the walks, require that everyone wear a mask, and socially distance while on the trails. In addition to wildflowers, as a result of the good work WWC has done to remove invasive species, our native trees and shrubs will be leafing out among an abundance of wildlife. You will likely see a migrating warbler or two.

Programs and event changes
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Events committee decided not to hold any indoor events for the remainder of the year, including the holiday party. We will open the Kirby building for bathroom access for outdoor events. Please practice proper social distancing procedures and correctly wear a mask to ensure the health and safety of all guests. We will be keeping a close eye on any developments regarding the COVID-19 virus and will carefully consider how we proceed in the weeks and months ahead.
