"You don’t have to be a plant expert to enjoy these trips and lectures. The locations are amazing and the atmosphere is casual. I’ve enjoyed every event that I’ve attended for many years!"- BB

 What you missed- On November 19, 2022, our group of 8 worked removing honeysuckle at Avon Woods Preserve on a cold sunny winter day. The Society is exchanging our volunteer work for use of Avon Woods for five meetings each year. Thanks to Lisa, Rachel, Mike, James, Jenny, Drew, Rob R, and Bob B.

7:00 pm – Lecture -"Conservation in Action - Planning, Protection and Restoration" presented by Andy Dickerson, Director of Cardinal Land Conservancy

Four different non-profit organizations have joined their multi-disciplinary/agency teams together to determine their conservation targets. The targets can include ecological systems, communities or species and even include human values like education or clean drinking water. We define some key attributes and indicators that will help us at a future workshop where we’ll define threats and create SMART objectives with costs. Filtered throughout the process will be Inclusion and Diversity considerations by each group as well as climate change and climate smart opportunities.

Andy Dickerson is the Director of the Cardinal Land Conservancy, whose mission is to preserve natural habitats, waterways, agricultural lands, and open space in Southwest Ohio, including Adams, Brown, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland, and Warren counties. Cardinal was formed in 2015, when three smaller land trusts merged into one. They have several local natural areas and farms that are open to the public. See https://www.cardinallandconservancy.org/
