NATURAL TREASURES IN OHIO
Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Why It's a Natural Treasure
A short distance from the urban bustle of Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. A 22-mile stretch of the Cuyahoga River flows through this oasis of green space, winding its way from deep forests to rolling hills and open farmland, creating a refuge for plants and wildlife along the way. Numerous protected wetlands help to naturally filter pollutants from the river, which empties into Lake Erie—a source of drinking water for more than 11 million Americans.
The Nature Conservancy has been active in Northeast Ohio for decades, protecting the upper headwaters of the Cuyahoga River at places like Burton Wetlands and its Lucia S. Nash Preserve.
What to See and Do
Look for wildlife on the wetland boardwalk of Beaver Marsh, relax by Blue Hen Falls or go fishing in the Cuyahoga River. Feeling adventurous? Experience the breathtaking view of Brandywine Falls when you hike the 1.5-mile Brandywine Gorge Trail.
