Naturalist Programs

We hold a variety of nature programs and special events at various Clermont County Parks throughout the year. All programs are free and open to the public unless otherwise specified and will be held rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, cancellation will be posted on our Facebook at least 2 hours before the program is scheduled. Registration is not required unless specified in the program description but we appreciate knowing if you plan to come.

PLEASE NOTE – Until further notice, most in person programs, events, and camps are cancelled in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Our priority is the safety and well-being of all of our guests, volunteers and employees. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we will continue to provide updates with any changes. Check out our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to see what the naturalists are up to at the moment or email rgreen@clermontcountyohio.gov to speak with a park naturalist.

Naturalist on the Move
Weekly July – August, 2020

Naturalists are on the Move! Visitors to our Parks and Nature Preserves might spot a naturalist “on the move” answering your questions, observing our parks, and sharing daily nature observations. We’ll be having short 5-10 minutes conversations with park visitors and only talking with one family at a time to create a safe and comfortable environment. Sometimes we will plan ahead of time while other times we’ll just come out to the parks on a nice day! Check back here or follow our social media pages for updates on when and where we will be this week. Sessions will be cancelled when there is severe weather.

Upcoming Naturalist on the Move:
Saturday August 1, 12 – 2 p.m., Chilo Lock 34 Park
