Directions to Avon Woods Nature Center:  

Most of our meetings are held at Avon Woods Nature Center, a Cincinnati park located at 4235 Paddock Road, 45229 in the Paddock Hills/North Avondale neighborhood.

From the Norwood Lateral, take the Paddock Road exit.

Drive 9/10 mile south on Paddock. (You pass across Tennessee Ave. and little Egan Hills Drive or your right)

Turn sharp right into the park driveway next to the park sign (on the WEST side of Paddock)

Follow the long dark driveway to the lodge at the end.

Google maps knows the name "Avon Woods Nature Center" and the map correctly shows the long driveway

Typical Meeting at Avon Woods

During a typical meeting, we have a short (and, we believe, entertaining) 15-minute business meeting first, then the featured speaker, and then excellent refreshments. Visitors are welcome at all events and the refreshments are good! Bring something to share.

Directions to the Gathering at Northern Hills (formerly Northern Hills Fellowship):  Twice a year in December and March, we have meetings (with a potluck dinner) at Northern Hills Fellowship located at 460 Fleming Road 45231 .  Fleming Road runs East-West  between Winton Road and Springfield Pike, and is just North of the Suburb of Wyoming, Ohio. Look closely since the Sign is small. Google knows the address 460 Fleming Road 45231.

Our newsletter or website will show the time for food and the time for our lectures at Northern Hills.  The meals are potluck, so bring a appetizer, main dish, side dish or dessert to share with the group. If you would like a food assignment or have questions, contact or 513-477-4438

 All our events are free and open to the public and all are welcome. Our hikes are casual and our trip leaders are familiar with most plants and will be glad to share their knowledge with you.
