This year marks the 50th anniversary of Ohio becoming the nation’s first state to pass Scenic River Protection legislation, with the Little Miami River being named the state’s first Scenic River in 1969.

In celebration, a special screening of the documentary “Call of the Scenic River,” along with two other films, will be featured at the Clifton Opera House on Friday, July 13, 7 p.m. Guest speakers will include Hope Taft, founder of the Little Miami Watershed Network, and Bob Gable, manager of the Scenic Rivers Program at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Refreshments will be provided, and all are welcome to attend.

The event is part of “Year of the River,” a year-long celebration of the Little Miami River and its impact on the region. The celebration is co-sponsored by The Little Miami Watershed Network, the Village of Clifton, the Rivers Revival, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Tecumseh Land Trust, Glen Helen and the Beavercreek Wetlands.
