Experience the 650-acre Lucia S. Nash Preserve first hand and behind-the-scenes.  The preserve is a mix of wetlands and forest and it features an ancient kettle lake within the heart of one of Ohio's finest remaining glacial wetlands. Help TNC staff and experienced volunteers to protect and manage these important habitats.

We are easing back into having in-person events. Events are limited to 9 participants plus a crew leader. All current TNC organizational safety guidelines will be followed.
