Spring Ephemeral Native Wildflower Walk

April 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Spring Ephemeral Walk April 8 11:00am-12:30pm







Join Joyce Richter, Western Wildlife Corridor board member, naturalist and avid hiker, as she takes us on a guided walk through the preserve. We hope to see Blue-eyed Mary carpeting the forest floor, a variety of Waterleaf species, and many  other blooming understory native wildflowers.  We recommend sturdy shoes, a walking stick if you need more stability, and water.  We will require wearing masks, social distancing during our walk. Limit to 10. You must RSVP to before April 5.  Follow the map link below, meet at the gravel pull-off on Bender Road.

Bender Mountain Preserve is more than fifty acres of wooded hillside between Bender Road and Hillside Avenue.

The principal areas of the preserve are owned by Delhi Township and the Western Wildlife Corridor, who maintain the trails and work to eliminate invasive species throughout the Preserve. Bender Mountain has a range of hiking options from easy to strenuous, and even includes a long-ago-abandoned stretch of Delhi Pike. Bender Mountain Preserve has over three miles of hiking trails, some with a fantastic view of the Ohio River. This is a lovely, heavily wooded, restored nature preserve that supports hundreds of plant and animal species. It’s been described as the “best place in Hamilton County to observe native wildflowers” by Dr. Denis Conover, botanist with the University of Cincinnati. The trails are well-maintained, have Trail markers (signposts), and feature four benches. Follow this link for a map.
