Greenspace Gem: Mouth of the Little Miami Nature Preserve

Protected by Cardinal Land Conservancy, the 119-acre Mouth of the Little Miami Nature Preserve is the region’s largest protected floodplain forest. The preserve supports a beaver colony, nesting bald eagles, and seven plant and animal species that are threatened or endangered in Ohio. A 1.8-mile path (closed during floods and the eagle nesting season) loops along a utility road, the bank of the Little Miami, and the shoreline of the Ohio River. Learn more about our region's many Greenspace Gems!
