My family lives next to Rowe Woods, and we have enjoyed walking Rowe
Woods for many years. We have watched with enjoyment in some of the
changes. The expansion that has taken place over the years and trail
improvements. We’ve also been saddened by some of the changes in Rowe
Woods. Many people who worked and did studies at CNC use to be
neighbors. Times change and so do places, I hope Stanley would be happy
with the changes in the Cincinnati Nature Center at Rowe Woods. His
mission was changed, time will tell.
CNC is less part of the neighborhood than it was when we
first moved here 22 years ago. There were more workers at the Nature
Center who lived next to us or in the general area. Mr. Berry was very
approachable as were all the workers like Tom and Wanda. Some workers
still live near by, other houses have burnt down or were cleared for
frontage. It was sad when they removed the nice house that workers and
people doing studies of bats and other nature experiments. When Mr.
Berry left things began to change. I knew it would not be the same when
I saw a good fur tree cut down just to place a sign at the entrance to
Rowe Woods. CNC is more about image and business, not being neighborhood
Times changes and I guess so has how Cincinnati Nature Center
now being operated. It is not like the Sunday pancake gatherings and
meeting and talking with workers like the old days. My neighbors and I
wonder sometimes about the changes and we just shake our heads. Much in
Rowe Woods is the same and much has changed over the last 20 years. To
soon to tell what it will be like 20 years from now. I now go
Park Nature Preserve, a free park just south down Tealtown Road and
Eastgate. Silvia Shor dedicated it to David Shor her late husband who
love the horse farm and nature. A great place to go if you can not
afford membership to Cincinnati Nature Center or the daily entrance fees
to Rowe Woods.
I’m a photographer and have taken many photos in Rowe Woods over the years.
