Land preservationist shares expertise with the Glen
- Published: March 8, 2012
The dense forest canopies and native prairies are precious resources in the southwest region of Ohio, where thousands of acres of open land have been preserved in perpetuity, thanks to the work of Arc of Appalachia Preserve System. Since the nonprofit was founded in 1995, it has raised $10 million used to purchase 14 preserve regions between the Ohio and Scioto Rivers and raise awareness about responsible land stewardship.
If the southwest Ohio river valley is the arc of Appalachia, then Glen Helen is the arc of the natural Miami Valley, and it also needs permanent protection. The Glen and Tecumseh Land Trust have been working for over a year to accomplish such a goal. Together the two organizations will host Arc of Appalachia Director Nancy Stranahan to talk about efforts that group has made and is making to save similar kinds of natural resources in the greater region.Stranahan will give a presentation about
Stranahan will give a slide show presentation at the Glen Helen Building on Friday, March 9, 7–9 p.m.
The TLT and the Glen will continue to host a series of walks and talks throughout the year focused on their joint effort to preserve the Glen.
The Glen was a popular spot on this most recent Wednesday afternoon for people, birds and fungus alike.
