      School is out and summer is here!  This is a great time to get the kids and yourself outside and active!  Take up a new hobby... Check out the different apps available for plant, tree or bird identification.  Go on a “treasure hunt” looking for the geocaches in the parks or take a hike looking for the Ramble Quest signs.  Maybe you have always wanted to try fishing, check out our ponds at Stillwater Prairie Reserve, Twin Arch Reserve, Garbry Big Woods Reserve and Maple Ridge Reserve – no fishing license required.  Summer is also a great time to take up canoeing or kayaking on the Great Miami or Stillwater Rivers.  We have several parks along the rivers with boating access.  Finally, don’t forget to check out our extensive, exciting summer program calendar to see all of the great things we have going on.

      I hope to see you in your parks!!
