My husband and I are blogging together here as a team. I’m Deb, and my husband is Bob. We both enjoy hiking, camping, cycling and photography. And we often enjoy these activities in one of Ohio’s many parks. Ohio’s parks and nature preserves are owned and operated across all levels of government: federal, state, county, and municipal. There are also parks that are operated by non-profit organizations, like the Nature Conservancy or the Audubon Society. We have pulled together information about these parks and preserves in our online guide to help people decide which parks have features that appeal to them. In addition to our guide, we publish photos and reviews of these parks on our blog. We also periodically post articles on nature topics, and on the geology and history of specific Ohio parks.
Since we live in Central Ohio, this area is perhaps the easiest for us to cover. But we’ve also made many treks farther afield. We’ll identify the location of a park by assigning it to one of the five geographical regions that are traditionally used in Ohio: northeast, northwest, central, southeast, and southwest.
It would delight us to learn that some of our readers found information here that helped them to plan some of their own trips, or simply enjoyed some of the nature posts and photography that we’ll be sharing here.
