What we're about

Welcome to the group that paddles Ohio‘s, rivers and creeks. If you enjoy paddling moving water (and some lakes too), this is the group for you! Keep in mind that paddling in moving water involves more inherent risk than paddling still water. Because of this, some paddles may not be appropriate for new or beginner paddlers. You must read and accept our release of liability prior to joining or attending any event. Now, lets go paddling!

Full Super Blood Wolf Total Lunar Eclipse Moon Apocalypse Hike - Sugarcreek

Well, I don't know if it is the apocalypse, but all the names they give these moons anymore make it sound like something is bad is about to happen. Let's enjoy a hike under the Full Super Blood Wolf Total Lunar Eclipse Moon on a night hike at Sugarcreek MetroPark HIKE DETAILS We will hike the green and orange trails. Pace will be moderate, and we will stop for a short break. We will finish the hike in the prairie where Full Super Blood Wolf Total Lunar Eclipse Moon should be well above the trees. Distance about 4.3 miles. WHAT TO BRING Bring water, source of light (REQUIRED), trekking poles, waterproof boots. Dress accordingly in layers. Expect some mud and to cross a creek a couple times. MORE ABOUT THE SUGARCREEK METROPARK Oak trees estimated to be 550 years old, a tallgrass prairie, woodlands and the scenic Sugar Creek beckon visitors. Although much of Sugarcreek’s 618 acres were once farmland, MetroParks land management practices, and natural processes, have resulted in a variety of habitats. These habitats support diverse wildlife that can be discovered as you hike, horseback ride, run the trails, exercise your pets or enjoy a leisurely picnic.

Visit the Mound Science and Energy Museum (Mound Cold War Discovery Center)

Mound Cold War Discovery Center

The fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm the MSEMA will sponsor a presentation at the Mound Cold War Discovery Center. This is open to the public and is free of charge. Web site: https://moundmuseum.com/ Video: https://youtu.be/UxV6p5FoL3I Mound Laboratory and the Mound site, located at southern edge of Miamisburg, between Dayton and Cincinnati, in Southwestern Ohio, hold significant places in the history of the Nuclear Age and in the hearts and minds of the dedicated scientists and workers who labored there for more than 50 years. The people, the plant, their research and manufactured items were at the leading edge of the Nuclear Age in the United States. Mound built components went with NASA to the moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the sun reliably powering their instruments and keeping them at operational temperatures. They are still continuing in the same vein into interstellar space. The Mound Science and Energy Museum Association (MSEMA) is a non profit organization that was established to collect, preserve and make publicly accessible the heritage of the Mound Laboratory, its workers and its site. To that end, MSEMA has partnered with Dayton History to provide professionally designed enhanced displays that better educate visitors to the museum about the important work done at this site that helped win the Cold War. In honor of that effort the name has been changed to the Mound Cold War Discovery Center. In addition to the enhanced displays, there is a focus on educating the visitors on important related subjects like radiation. Operating hours have been expanded and admission is still free.
