Each week, we will get our heart rate up and get moving while enjoying the outdoors in our beautiful parks. Walks are guided and self-paced. Greene County Parks & Trails, Fairborn Parks & Recreation and the City of Beavercreek Parks Department have teamed up to provide walks all over Greene County.
All walks are rated for difficulty with a 1 being the easiest and a 3 being the most difficult. Ratings consider terrain, elevation changes, etc.
Like firetrucks? How about big tractors? This month we are bringing out the big trucks and equipment so your kiddos can get an up close look at the world of working vehicles. Have you ever wanted to hit the sirens on a cop car? We got you covered, so stop by and say hello to the rangers, they might just let you do just that.
This program is if ages 2-5, no registration is required.
Stay tuned for more details!

The Russ Nature Reserve lost nearly 1,000 trees as a result of the 2019 Memorial Day tornado outbreak. With such loss, the look of the park is forever changed.
Please join us on Arbor Day as we start the reforestation process by planting hundreds of trees, bringing life back to the park.
We may not get to see it like it was in our generation but we sure can bring it back to life for future generations.
Please bring along shovels and gloves, refreshments will be provided.
EverWalk is a movement designed to build a nation of walkers and get people off their phones, out in nature and living healthier lifestyles. It was created by Diana Nyad, the first person in history to swim the 111 miles from Cuba to Florida and her Cuba swim expedition leader Bonnie Stoll. These walks are popular all over the United States and we will be hosting them in Greene County every last Saturday from March-November in a different park each time. Each hike begins at 9:00 and goes until noon. Feel free to bring your well-mannered dogs on non-retractable leashes. Hikes will alternate each month between being on one of our bike paths and being on hiking trails in one of our parks. April we will be headed to Indian Mound Reserve in Cedarville.
As spring migration picks up in Greene County the trees will begin to fill with the brilliant orange of Baltimore Orioles, the vibrant red of Summer Tanagers, and the melodious tones of singing Wood Thrushes.
