This gorgeous 119-acre site consists of 3,500 linear feet of valuable river frontage – including bottomlands and an upland forested ridge adjacent to Big Darby Creek, just north of Darbyville in Pickaway County.
We are very grateful to Les and Ethel Cline for helping to preserve this site and for donating a portion of the property to AOA.
AOA is partnering with several conservation partners to help conserve riparian lands in the Big Darby Creek corridor. Big Darby is a nationally designated scenic river recognized for its high water quality and biological diversity. The conserved property protects habitat for several rare and endangered species of bats, mussels and fish.
Afterwards, stay and help us pull some of the invasive garlic mustard that is choking the wildflowers.
Time: Meet at 10:00 a.m.
Location: The Cline Preserve is located along London Road just north of Darbyville – use Google map below.
What to Bring: Dress appropriately for the weather and walking in forests and fields. Feel free to bring a lunch or snacks and stay to enjoy a picnic lunch and enjoy the Preserve.
