Our hikes and lectures are free and open to the public,  and all are welcome. (but we depend on our memberships to cover our expenses.) ."You don’t have to be a plant expert to enjoy these trips and lectures. The locations are amazing and the atmosphere is casual. I’ve enjoyed every event that I’ve attended for many years!"- BB.

What you missed- On Friday Feb 9, 2024 Matt Klooster presented a fine talk “Masters of Deception: The Biology of Non-Photosynthetic Plants of Southeast Ohio”. About 38 in attendance at Avon Woods, and about 20 Zoom attendees. The video recording is available here . (Actual Lecture starts at 5 min mark, questions at the 57:20 mark.)

 -----February 2024-----

Sunday, Feb. 18, 2024 at 2pm - Richardson Forest Preserve, Hamilton Co, OH - RSVP required (Limited to 14)

Join leaders Angela Carter and Nick Ludwig to one of our favorite locations to view some of the first wildflowers to bloom. This trail features a stream crossing along the forested pathway of the preserve.

Plan on bringing a hiking stick as well as wearing rubber or waterproof boots since the water levels may be close to or above your ankle. Due to the rocky creek crossing, this is considered a moderate trail. Directions and confirmation will be sent via email.

Please contact Angela Carter, amcarter@fuse.net or 513-300-2787, if you have any questions and register by 2/16/24.
