“Gone Batty” at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve

Posted on 8/4/2014 by State Nature Preserves


Visitors of all ages are invited to visit Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve this Friday, August 8 for a “Gone Batty” nighttime nature program at 8 p.m. Participants will learn about the mythology and truth of these often misunderstood nocturnal creatures, as well as learn how to “listen” for their unique nighttime sounds.

Reservations are required for this evening program. Please reserve your place by contacting the preserve office at (740) 380-8918 or by emailing levi.miller@dnr.state.oh.us. The program will begin at the preserve office, which is located at 7211 Bremen Road in Logan.

Located in northern Hocking County at the edge of the Hocking Hills region, Boch Hollow provides an excellent opportunity to see a wide diversity of habitats ranging from riparian corridors, mature wooded hills, ridges, and old field remnants. The most notable botanical feature at Boch Hollow is the extensive population of the federally endangered running buffalo clover – the largest such population in Ohio.

Unique among Ohio’s preserves is the mission of Boch Hollow to serve as an educational site for hands-on environmental education of Appalachian Ohio ecology. Primarily geared toward local school children, the staff also provides programs to the general public as well as various civic and environmental organizations.

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all.
