Places on a Map
Following is a map that displays the locations of all the places discussed in this post:
Caldwell Nature Preserve
Caldwell Nature Preserve, located just outside of Finneytown, is a lesser-known nature preserve that provides a wealth of chances for bird viewing. With more than 3.5 miles of paths that wind through densely forested areas, it is a birdwatcher’s dream. Because it is frequently uncrowded, this location is also a good place to immerse yourself in nature and unwind.
Cincinnati Nature Center
The Cincinnati Nature Center, located near Milford and encompasses more than 1,000 acres, has more than 16 miles of hiking trails and is open to the public. Best of all, there are so many different areas to walk through at the nature center that it is impossible to get bored. There are ponds to walk through, meadows to walk through, open fields to walk through, and wooded areas to walk through, which means there is an eclectic mix of birds that can be found in each of the different areas.
The center is open all year; however, please remember that daily entrance for adults is $9, or you may choose a yearly membership at a discounted rate. You can find out more about their admission, hours, and rates here.
