  • C of C efforts pay off— Village a mecca for many

    Christa Thomas, left, and Jen Foley celebrated the local St. Patrick’s Day festivities with their children, Aeridan and Oriah. The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce organized the “Shamrocks & Shenanigans” pub crawl, which drew swarms of visitors to the village on a sunny Saturday.

    A mecca for arts lovers. A thoroughfare for avid bicyclists and hikers. A place to soak up street life and people watch. And now, a town in which slightly buzzed tourists can wander from bars to restaurants to shops.

  • Nudes reveal arts controversy

    Spring has sprung three to four weeks early this year, as evidenced by the billowy white pear trees downtown, which most often bloom in mid April.

  • Real watershed moments for area

    Hikers carefully navigated the stepping stones across Birch Creek in the Glen Helen Nature Preserve last weekend. The three local rivers that run through the Glen—Birch Creek, Yellow Springs Creek and the Little Miami River—drain runoff from village streets and area farms. Any contamination in the local watershed eventually makes its way into the Glen, impacting ecosystem health and recreational activities. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Where Yellow Springs begins and ends is defined by clear political boundaries. But the village also exists within an ecosystem that has boundaries of its own. An important one is its watershed, an area of land that drains into a common waterway.
