    Western Wildlife Corridor is dedicated to preserving and protecting the wooded hillsides in the beautiful Ohio River Valley on the west side of Cincinnati.  

    Each year volunteers remove Amur honeysuckle, garlic mustard and many other alien invaders that choke out the native plants.  The result is that WWC now boasts some of the best native wildflower viewing in Hamilton County while also creating a natural habitat for native animal species to thrive.  WWC has recently acquired new properties that need restoration, along with our older preserves that need a bit of maintenance.

    If you would like to volunteer for this important work, please contact WWC for habitat restoration times and dates.  A bonus benefit of volunteering is seeing and hiking woodland trails, many with panoramic views.

    For information about upcoming habitat restoration events contact Tim Sisson at 513-922-2104 or tsisson@fuse.net.
