Cincinnati Nature Center
What can we say about this place except that we are extremely lucky to have the Cincinnati Nature Center in our city! Over and over again the CNC leads not just our region, but the entire country in standards for trails, kids programs, play areas, and events.
This has been our stomping ground for trail hikes, nature photography, and conditioning before taking our trips for years now. We LOVE the Cincinnati Nature Center! When inspired by such a place, we feel the calling to give back. Beyond our personal memberships, we have been corporate members of the CNC since 2011 and part of their membership perks program since it began in 2014. This program offers a 10% discount at participating sponsors including RRT when you buy a yearly membership. We have been proud sponsors of Hoots and Hops and Back to Nature Fundraising donors and attendees since 2012, and Trail Building Volunteer organizers since 2013.
While being members and corporate members we assure that we are doing our part to help the nature center thrive, while ensuring that we have access to pristine trails and invites to super creative and fun events. Lending our time to make other CNC events special like the Hoots and Hops events is what makes RRT unique. RRT has also hosted several speaking engagements with the CNC like backpacking courses or A.T. presentations. RRT has also volunteered time to lead regular hikes as part of their Hike for Your Health series.
RRT is most proud of their leadership in hosting trail building and maintenance volunteer events multiple times a year. We’ve helped cut honeysuckle, correct drainage patterns, fix trail erosion, and strengthen worn trails all while learning proper techniques from a naturalist. The work seems more like play, the people that come out are amazing, and everyone is filled with the satisfaction of volunteering for a cause.
