The 2018 brochure outlining the guidelines for the annual juried art exhibition is being prepared for distribution. The target area for 2018 is Oakes Quarry Park. The Oakes Quarry Park is located on Route 235 just east of Interstate 675 and consists of 190 acres of park. Formerly a rock quarry, the park features one of the world’s largest and most diverse collections of marine organism fossils. The park also includes foot trails and horseback trails that cross ancient limestone fossils. Everyone should take a day and enjoy our remaining warm days by exploring this amazing park in the City of Fairborn.
After lots of hard work led by our own Bob Jurick and Steve Carne, we recently closed on a new conservation easement with Clark County.134 acres on the Clark County Well Field property roughly at the corner of I-675 and I-70 will be preserved from development and will only allow the possibility of a future well site on a small portion of the site if Clark County wishes to do so.
After a lot of hard work, the Valle View Wetlands are now officially open. Members of City Council, The Park Board and other representatives were on hand for the ribbon cutting and a walking tour by Nancy Bain. Bob Jurick and Eric Sauer represented BW Greenway. Please stop by for a great quarter mile walk and see the flora and fauna as well as the permeable parking lot. The parking lot is located just north of the Fifth Third Bank Branch right at the North East corner of I-675 and Dayton–Yellow Springs Road
