Scioto River Flyway Corridor set to be dedicated June 18

LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — The Appalachia Ohio Alliance is preparing to dedicate the newest nature preserve along the Scioto River.

An open house and dedication of the Scioto River Flyway Corridor is planned for June 18. The event features interactive exhibits, interpretive walks, site tours and a cookout.

Activities will be centered in the bottomland forest and fields on the Marsha Gunder Schneider Preserve in Pickaway County. The property is one of four core components of the corridor initiative. The other three are the Kreisel Preserve, Cossin Preserve and the Haddox Scippo Creek Corridor Preserve.

The day will include discussions of the geology, geography, archaeology, native heritage, natural history and biological significance of the site. Information will also be shared on restoration plans, habitat conservation, farmland preservation, wildlife and local history.
