Trella Romine Prairie Walk and Plant Sale
Explore the tall grass prairie habitats and enjoy summertime at the beautiful Trella Romine Prairie in southern Marion County. Enjoy a naturalist-led stroll through the prairie during the peak of the wildflowers and observe the butterflies, birds and various other inhabitants of a tall grass ecosystem.
Our walk will be led by Gale Martin, Director of the Marion County Historical Society and board member of the Ohio Prairie Association, as well as a caretaker of the Trella Romine Prairie. Gale will also have native plants for sale from her nursery – Natives in Harmony.
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.

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.
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.
