What you missed- on Saturday May 1, 2021, Our Society assisted Preserve Burnet Woods by pulling more than (!) 25 bags of Garlic Mustard at Burnet Woods.  Thanks to the seventeen hard workers in attendance. Weather dry sunny 44 warming to 57. Photos- Dreaded Resprout #2 , Volunteer Glenn , Sitting on a Big Garlic Mustard

--Our next event--

 Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 9am: Annual Give Back Day, Garlic Mustard Pull at Caesar Creek Gorge State Nature Preserve on Corwin Road, Warren County, Ohio

Join us, for three hours, to pull the invasive garlic mustard plant, which is easy to recognize and yank out of the ground. No experience is necessary. We want to help conserve DNAP's (Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves) limited resources and preserve this lovely area where so much work has already been done on the bush honeysuckle. Bring gloves and enthusiasm. We'll furnish bags. Hope for good weather. Of course, you can relax and take a nice walk after pulling garlic mustard!

Caesar Creek Gorge is a wonderful preserve of 461 acres with a variety of spring ephemerals. The gorge walls, rising 180 feet above the river, were formed by glacial meltwater, exposing Ordovician limestone and shale rich in fossils. The preserve contains diverse habitat, including floodplain and hillsides heavily wooded with beech, maple, hickory, and oak.

Note that we will be working at the Caesar Creek GORGE STATE NATURE PRESERVE on Corwin Road and NOT the nearby Caesar Creek STATE PARK.  See trail map at  https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7025300/main-loop

Please plan on wearing a mask and practice social distancing. Contact Angela Carter at 513-300-2787 or amcarter@fuse.net if you have any questions.

Directions: Google maps now knows the trailhead parking lot location as “Caesar Creek Gorge State Nature Preserve, 4080 Corwin Road, Oregonia, OH”. Driving time from Cincinnati is about 45 minutes.

From Cincinnati, drive North on I-71 for 36 miles to Exit #36 (Wilmington Road).

At the bottom of the exit, turn left (west) onto Wilmington Road and drive 1.7 miles (down the big hill and curve).

At the bottom of the big hill and curve, continue straight onto Corwin Road for 1.5 miles (Wilmington Road turns left and crosses the Little Miami) to the town of Oregonia.

Turn right to stay on Corwin road and drive 100 feet.

Turn left to stay on Corwin Road and drive 3.2 miles.

The State Nature Preserve parking lot will be on your right which is where we will meet.

Google also recommends a route taking exit #32 from I-71 with similar driving time, and both are nice drives.
