Come Take a Hike with the Anderson Foundation for Parks & Recreation!  We will start in the outdoor classroom to learn from our guest speakers about the impact of non-native plants to our environment. Drew Goebel of Cincinnati Parks will discuss broadly how biodiversity is impacted by invasive plant species and Ken Kushner, Director of Anderson Parks will describe our efforts to replace invasive species with native plants. Following this short discussion, we will take a hike with Drew, where he will point out the important native plants and invading species that make up our own Johnson Hills forest.  This event is open to all ages, and is free for everyone.

Given the nature of this event we will be limited in capacity.  Please reserve your spot soon to ensure you get to take part!

DETAILS: Wear some boots or good walking shoes, the trail can be muddy. We will be taking a 1.5 mile hike along the Perimeter (Blue) Trail. This trail is downhill at start and a moderate uphill grade throughout the last two-thirds of the hike. We will make stops throughout the walk to appreciate our plant species and discuss the important markers for forest health.
