Our president, Tim Sisson, didn't let the cold keep him indoors yesterday!

He wrote, "I took a short hike at the Kirby Nature Preserve yesterday and found the snow had created some really beautiful scenes. I wish I could have captured the full grandeur of the landscape, but the pictures will have to do.

The snow was outlining every branch and sparkled in the sun. I ran across a small group of deer...one stopped to see who (or what) was interrupting their quiet enjoyment of the nature preserve. Seed heads in the prairie had little snow hats on them (these are wild bergamot)."

WWC Project & Hike
Where: Story Woods and Beekley property
When: Thursday, November 14, •••1:00 p.m.•••
•••NOTE NEW TIME! 1:00 p.m.!•••Tuesday and Wednesday look to be quite frigid, so we’re going to hike on Thursday this week. We’ll take a look at Story Woods and the adjoining Beekley property that we protect. Well wander around the park and Beekley property to see how they’re doing and to look for and honeysuckle that’s trying to sneak in. We’re also switching to our winter starting time of 1:00 p.m. to catch the warmer part of the day.
The hike will not be very strenuous - there won’t be any steep hills to climb. So if you’d like to do an easy hike in a nice forest, please join us if at all possible this Thursday at 1:00 p.m.
We will meet at the Story Woods parking lot. To get there, go out Rapid Run road and turn south on Pontius. If you’re coming from the direction of downtown Cincinnati, turn left on Pontius; if you’re coming from the direction of Saylor Park, turn right. The driveway to Story Woods is on the left a short distance from Rapid Run.
Bring work gloves, plenty of water, wear work clothes and shoes. Please call Tim at 513 922 2104 for additional information.
