With its 113 acres of forest and year round education programming, California Woods Nature Preserve offers something for all nature lovers. The park features 53 species of trees, more than 200 species of herbaceous plants and adjacent to the Magrish Preserve, a designated Important Birding Area. Lick Run Creek passes through this preserve, and is home to kingfishers, snapping turtles, small fish, myriad invertebrates and the occasional visit from grebes, mallards, wood ducks and beavers.
On one of California’s hiking trails, look for pileated woodpeckers and even great horned owls among the tall sycamores. A butterfly and hummingbird garden is located directly in front of the nature center. *No Pets Allowed at this Preserve*
Specified areas and trails within Cincinnati Parks will be closed for portions of the fall and winter in order to sustain the natural resources and wildlife within the parks.
