Slate Run Metro Park and Living Historical Farm

Slate Run features a variety of habitats ranging from the open areas of grasslands, wetlands and meadows to the forested areas of beech, oak, hickory and sugar maple. Wildlife viewing opportunities abound at the 1,705-acre park. Sandhill cranes have nested in the 156-acre wetland and the northern bobwhite quail have been reintroduced in the park.

Stages Pond State Nature Park

These 178 acres of land are a beautiful mixture of woodland, marsh, and aquatic lands, with the distinctive kettle lake, a feature of a glaciated area. The preserve is nature's own monument to the great ice fields that covered most of Ohio thousands of years ago. During the fall, many varieties of waterfowl stop at the preserve during migration to rest and feed on the pond and marshy areas.
