Old CNC Mission Statement for Rowe Woods
"Provide the Greater Cincinnati community, especially young people, the
opportunity to experience, study and enjoy the natural world.
Encourage understanding, appreciation, and responsible stewardship of
the environment through education.
Preserve the heritage and integrity of Cincinnati Nature Center natural
and agricultural lands."
Rowe Woods was founded In 1965 as the main location for the
Cincinnati Nature Center, founded by a handful of dedicated and
visionary naturalists, lead by Stanley M. Rowe Sr. Along with other people
and volunteers they created an organization where people could experience, study
and enjoy the nature in a natural world setting. At the old CNC you
could find pristine fields, ponds, lake and woods. The mission
statement has been scraped and CNC has gone very commercial. The old
idea of allowing the land to return to it's natural state has had a
change to a new Disneyesque type of nature place. So this Website is a
collection of pictures to remember the way nature was learned
naturally at the old CNC. The Cincinnati Nature Photography Center
documents the changes natural and un-natural to Rowe Woods
This site is dedicated to
Stanley M. Rowe Sr., Karl H. Maslowski, Kay Benedict, Helen
Black, Katherine T. Nyce, William J. Whittaker, Jim and Jeanne
Anderson. As well as the other founders of the Cincinnati Nature
Center. Also to the old workers and people who live in and around Rowe
Woods, Cincinnati Nature Center.
