YP Event: Winter Walk & Talk @ Buttercup Valley Nature Preserve
Feb 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Brave the cold… or warmth (who knows its Cincinnati) to join us for a hike in Buttercup Valley Nature Preserve located in the neighborhood of Northside. CGC Horticulturalist, Greg Torres, will talk about what plants, animals, and insects are up to this time of year and the impact this crazy weather is having on our forests. Join us afterward as we continue the conversation over a drink in Northside.
This hike is free, no registration required! Address: 1558 Stanford Dr, Cincinnati, OH 45223.
