Twin Valley Tour: How Protecting a Nat. Resource Created an Opportunity to Connect People to Nature

Sunday, May 07
Time: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $35 (lunch on own at local eatery)
Skill Level: Intermediate

Visit the Twin Valley, the most bio-diverse area in the Dayton Region, and the only habitat in Montgomery County that has reported sightings of bobcats and black bears. We will highlight the 22-mile TVT backpacking trail that connects two separate park areas in the Twin Valley. Stops will include a 1.5-mile hike, an ODNR funded paddling access, a newly renovated hiking center, a backcountry campsite, and the Germantown Dam. We will discuss the evolution and challenges connected to managing the backpacking trail and will highlight how conservation efforts and the development of the flood protection system have provided recreation opportunities including backpacking, paddling, fishing, and more.
