The Ohio Nature Conservancy Meetup Group is open to anyone who wants to enjoy Ohio’s best outdoor places in the company of others. Here we will list hikes, bird walks, visits to our preserves and other social outings, along with volunteer opportunities at our statewide network of nature preserves. You don’t need to be a member or a volunteer to participate in these events, but we hope our members and volunteers will use this group to become more closely engaged with the work the Conservancy is doing to conserve, connect and restore Ohio’s finest natural areas.
