Join Us for New Member Hikes!

Welcome to our nature community! Cincinnati Nature Center offers two excellent experiences for those who want to learn more about Rowe Woods, our primary location in Milford, or Long Branch Farm & Trails, our members-only location in Goshen. These hikes are perfect for new members but all members are welcome. Attending one of these hikes allows you to gain an insider's scoop on what Cincinnati Nature Center does best. These hikes are offered seasonally, March – October.
