EcOhio Program in Warren County

The Cincinnati Zoo is so much more than animals. Not only is it a leading botanical garden, but there are offsite programs to help protect and reclaim the environment. Their EcOhio sustainability program works around the Zoo in Avondale, but also at the Bowyer Farm in Warren County, where a recently completed wetland reclamation project has returned 24 acres to its natural habitat. Brian Jorg led this initiative and he’s Thane Maynard’s guest on today’s Field Notes.

It’s getting close to the annual fund raising gala which helps fund the facility. The name attraction has had to step down due to ill health, which puts a crimp in their style.
