Valuing Urban Landscapes – The Ravines of Clintonville

Thursday, June 8

7:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center

In Columbus’ Clintonville neighborhood, just north of Ohio State University, several small tributaries extend short distances east, with steep ravine topography. The beauty and solitude of these ravines were recognized by developers and preservationists since at least the 1920s. Closely linked to the main stem Olentangy, these ravines are home to many interesting and rare plant and animal species, and are key parts of the Olentangy River ecosystem.

Register by Thursday, June 1 to attend and learn more about these urban landscapes and who is helping protect and restore them. Then join a walking tour (via short bus ride) to see, smell and feel these unusual-for-urban-Ohio places.
