Why don’t we take advantage of this beautiful Ohio weather… and exercise outside? There are so many resources available in & around the Dayton area. Let’s take advantage!
The Nature Conservancy in Ohio and Honda have launched Natural Treasures of Ohio to educate Ohioans about the extraordinary areas located in their own state. This summer, participants who are up to the challenge will visit one or more pre-selected natural sites, where they can explore the property through a series of fun, family friendly activities and enter for a chance to win a 2012 Honda Insight Hybrid.
Parks participating in the Challenge around the Dayton area:
The Miami Valley is also abundant with great bike paths for biking, jogging, rollerblading, etc.
