AOA Partners in Ohio Bat Conservation Project
Over 500 Acres to be Conserved

Appalachia Ohio Alliance (AOA) is partnering with several compatible organizations to increase habitat for rare bats in Ohio. A project team, led by prime consultant EnviroScience, Inc., a regional environmental consulting and restoration firm, was selected by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to carry out a $5.0 million contract for bat mitigation activities in their Western Management Unit (WMU). AOA and The Conservation Fund, a respected nation-wide conservation organization, are key team members along with several subconsultants.

Fall Color Hike Along the Hocking Canal
Showcases Hocking River Valley Natural and Heritage Resources

40 AOA members and friends enjoyed a beautiful fall day walking the old canal towpath near Rockbridge. Although tree color was in short supply we all enjoyed the fall weather and trek through the bottomland forest and wetland habitats. One of the highlights was the Sheep Pen lock (pictured above). AOA is grateful to Jody Farrell of the Cincinnati Wildflower Preservation Society for leading the trip and identifying the various trees we encountered.

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.
