BCWA is partnering with
Miami Valley conservation organizations.

It has been nearly one year since the COVID pandemic started, and access to safe outdoor spaces has never been more important. We are fortunate to live in an area filled with beautiful green spaces. Our parks, forests, wetlands, hiking trails, and rivers and streams make Southwest Ohio a wonderful place to live. Without the protections and access provided by the group of organizations below, we wouldn't have these amazing resources!

The Gifts That Grow Campaign is a joint effort between Partners for the Environment and thirteen conservation organizations throughout Southwest Ohio. All funds raised during this campaign will be split evenly between the partnering organizations. We are working together to acheive our common goals: to protect, restore, preserve, and promote the environmental and agricultural resources of the Great Miami and Little Miami River watersheds.

Donate here through the Partners for the Environment Fund at The Dayton Foundation.

Pearl's Fen

Our partners at Greene County Parks & Trails have worked to restore the natural biodiversity at the headwaters of the Beaver Creek, and the results are incredible! With a new boardwalk, you can access one of the most stunning natural sites in our area. There are many ways to experience the beauty of this wetland:

We're working on something big!

Starting Winter 2020, together with our partners, we will begin building a new 15-mile trail that traverses the entirety of the Beaver Creek wetlands corridor.

Phase 1 is ramping up now. Read all about the Spotted Turtle Trail Project and learn more about our conservation work and how you can help make this vision a reality!

COVID Update

Enjoy the wetlands SAFELY

September 5, 2020 -- All public BCWA properties are open. We have been working with a decreased volunteer load to keep our boardwalks and trails maintained during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage our community to come out and visit the wetlands.

It's good to get outside!

While enjoying our outdoor spaces, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 FEET from people not not a part of your household. Use the pull-outs along the boardwalk when passing others.

  • Bring a face covering with you and wear it when you cannot maintain a safe distance from people not a part of your household.

  • Stay home if you or anyone in your household have symptoms of COVID-19.
