We want to go birding with you! Our birding pins let you carry your local birding pride wherever you go! And you'll gain access to our Birding GCP&T Facebook community, a great place to meet new birding friends, ask questions, and view exclusive content from our naturalists!
All funds generated from pin registrations will go towards our habitat stewardship efforts.
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 and 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.
You asked...we listened. We are back with another date night event.
Join us for a Romantic Night Out at Caesar Ford Park where staff helps to take the guess work out of date night.
Upon arrival, you will find a setting fit for romance with tables for two and just the right amount of lighting and music for a romantic dinner.
Your night will start with an appetizer along with a bottle of the house "sparkling" cider or juice.
Following you will get a delicious salad with a main dinner buffet and a special dessert surprise, just for two.
After dinner, join your partner on the dance floor for an evening to remember and/or take a romantic hike through the woods. The evening is yours...
