THE ARC OF APPALACHIA

invites you to join us for the

Gladys Riley Golden Star Lily

Preserve’s Grand Opening on April 1 at 1pm.

 

The Grand Opening will take place at the trailhead parking lot located just off of Tick Ridge Road in Otway, OH with a half-hour program to dedicate the preserve and recognize the families and community members who have helped make this long-awaited opening possible. Guided hikes will be offered immediately following the program, and because space is limited, participants are asked to pre-register.

Sorry, Registration for the guided hikes is now closed.
You can still hike on your own at the Grand Opening and any day after.

The preserve will be open to the public from this day forth year round from sunrise to sunset, free of charge.
