Spotted Turtle Trail

Be Part of a New Vision

Spotted Turtle Trail Project

Our Donors Make a Difference!

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’ve been stewards of this rare and unique wetland corridor right here in our community for more than 30 years, and now we are ready to take a big step forward to dramatically improve this 2,300 acre space. If you are someone who cares about our environment, both globally and right here in Greene County, please consider helping. Your donation will make it possible to both preserve and enhance this valuable asset for the benefit of all in our community.

Donate your TIME, your TALENT or your TREASURE

Benefits to the Region

Quality open space is essential to the health of a community. Our wetlands provide opportunities for meaningful experiences in an irreplaceable natural setting. The trail will provide:

  • A safe space with easy, year-round access
  • A well-maintained trail system giving you and your family an inspiring space for recreation
  • Continuous improvement to the wetland ecosystem, protecting natural habitats, mitigating floods preserving local drinking water, and acting as a carbon sink to mitigate climate change
  • Opportunities for education and research

Did you know that businesses typically donate to organizations that their employees support?

Part of our fundraising strategy is to obtain corporate sponsorships and/or encourage employee engagement activities to help develop this magnificent trail. 

Please consider giving our Format Letter to the owner, manager or marketing department of the company where you work. Add your information in the first paragraph. You may edit it as needed. Add your name and signature at the bottom.
