Join us for the Rock Use in Trail Building Workshop and Workday August 1st!

Come learn how to use native sandstone to create natural rock structures that last a lifetime. Andrew Bashaw of the Buckeye Trail Association (BTA) will teach us how to use a highline to pick up 1-ton boulders and place them right where we want them for use as trail support. Andrew will focus on building an in-trail staircase to traverse a steep slope. We’ll learn how to work smarter, not harder when working with rock.

Join us for our Native Medicinal Plant Walk and Plant Sale on August 9th!

Explore the woodland and prairie portions of AOA’s beautiful Conservation Demonstration Site in Rockbridge as we walk the property to survey and identify native medicinal plants growing on the site. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about threatened species such as American Ginseng, Goldenseal, and Black Cohosh, their preferred habitats, and techniques for growing them on your own property.

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.

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.
