Support the Spotted Turtle Trail

We invite you to be part of a big plan the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association and our local partners have for wetlands in Greene County, Ohio. We have been stewards of this rare and unique wetland corridor right here in our community for more than 30 years, and now we have begun Phase 2.

If you are someone who cares about our environment, both globally and right here in Greene County, please consider helping. Your donation makes it possible to  preserve and protect this valuable asset for the benefit of all in our community for today and the in the future.

Benefits to the Region

Wetlands are some of the most productive and dynamic habitats in the world, renowned for their ability to remove excess nutrients, toxic substances, and sediment from water that flows through them. This not only helps to improve downstream water quality, but the overall health of waters in our communities. Wetlands are so effective at improving water quality they have been referred to as the “kidneys” of a watershed.

Wetlands are among the most valuable but least understood of all natural resources. They provide rich habitat for wildlife. They are places in which many animals and birds build nests and raise their young. Migrating birds stop over in wetlands to rest and to feed. Wetlands benefit our communities as well. They replenish and clean water supplies and reduce flood risks, provide recreational opportunities and aesthetic benefits. They serve as sites for scientific research and education.
