      It has been a cold, snowy winter, and we are all getting anxious for spring. Be sure to make the most of the last few weeks of this season by heading out to one of Your Parks. Don’t let the cold temperatures keep you inside. Due to the lack of foliage, you can see things you don’t normally see, like bald eagles or maybe even a snowy owl! On many sections of the bikeway, you can see through the woods all the way to the Great Miami River.

      One of the most beautiful sites this time of year is seeing ice form at many of the Parks. Check out Charleston Falls Preserve, Greeneville Falls State Scenic River Area, the bikeway at Peterson Road and several of the Parks along the Stillwater River to see these amazing formations.

      See you in Your Parks!

      Can you see the flowers peaking?
      Their eyes above the ground?
      Stretching for the fiery sun,
      Yet never utter a sound.
      Do you hear the birds a'singing?
      They're calling all their news,
      Tweeting all day and humming all night,
      Whispering a one-tune blues.
      Have you felt the dewy grass in the morn?
      Now you've spilled all the ... (Read More)
