About this site

This Chronolog project is documenting the active habitat restoration by Natural Resources Specialist Nick Mikash, volunteers, and interns. Over time, we hope to see invasive plant species replaced by native plants. Native species attract and help native animals thrive.

The All People's Trail is a stunning, 1/3 mile, elevated, ADA-accessible boardwalk that overlooks a native marsh and winds through a floodplain forest. It is open from dawn to dusk and free to visit.

The Rose Foundation Gazebo in front of you is centered in the midst of this restoration project, and is surrounded by floodplain forest and marsh habitats. Over time, invasive plants such as European privet, crack willow, lesser celandine, and others have crowded out and replaced native plant species. Our goal is to replace these harmful invasives with many plants native to Northeast Ohio.

Your photo contributions will be compiled into a timelapse video that will help us understand and see the hard work
