Highlights From Our Bison Hollow Hike
Saturday, October 15

Our Bison Hollow event attracted a record group for an AOA sponsored hike at one of our preserves. Sixty-one participants enjoyed the gorgeous fall weather while exploring the many waterfalls, sandstone bluffs and riparian forest habitats of the southern Hocking Hills. We had a great group with a mix of many current and new AOA friends.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to read Steve Fought’s feelings about the Fought Preserve addition to Bison Hollow that he sold to AOA last year you can find it here: Steve Fought Testimonial.

We are planning another winter-time hike to Bison Hollow next year and hope that you will join us.

Thank You

To the 250 friends, partners, volunteers, exhibitors and collaborating organizations who participated in and helped make this event such a big success – and our largest event to date! Your support is greatly appreciated and directly responsible for our conservation achievements.

Testimonials

When we consider what it took to create this landscape, we must also consider what we can do to insure that future generations will also be able to marvel at its beauty.
Paul Knoop
The scenic views, diversity of plants and wildlife, and quiet times in the country will all be enhanced by the security of knowing that things can stay this way into the future.
Larry R. Menchhofer

In the end, I decided to sell my property to AOA because I love it so much. It was hard to part with it – but I am not really parting with it – it is there forever thanks to AOA.
