July Peak Bloom Ride

The 18th annual Prairie Appreciation Bike Ride is a leisurely 11 mile ride with various stops along the way suitable for all ages, started in 2005 by botanist and prairie enthusiast Jack McDowell to educate the community about the prairie treasures in the midst of threats from invasive woody plant and agricultural weed species. Jack McDowell passed away in 2012, but his dream to inspire others to preserve the Ohio prairie is not forgotten.
