The Spotted Turtle Trail: Explore Beavercreek’s Wetlands

February 12 @ 5:00 pm

David Goldstein, Beth Edsall and Jacki Mayer present The Spotted Turtle Trail: Explore Beavercreek’s Wetlands;

Over the past century or two, Ohio has lost about 90 percent of its wetlands. However, right here in our own backyard, a corridor of beautiful wetlands runs from Pearl’s Fen in the north to Phillips Park 15 miles downstream, along the course of Beaver Creek. For nearly 40 years, the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association, BCWA, has been working to preserve and conserve this critical habitat. Now, BCWA is spearheading an ambitious project to create a trail running the entire length of the corridor. The combination of dry trail and boardwalk is providing miles of hiking opportunities and access to habitat of great beauty and biodiversity. This presentation will provide an overview and update on the trail project
