Ohio Chapter: Fernald Preserve Tour

WEN: Women's Energy Network Ohio Chapter Logo  with white text on teal background
Did you know that there is a 1,050-acre preserve in southwest Ohio, named one of the top birding spots in Ohio, that was one a uranium processing plant to support the cold war?

Join WEN Ohio on September 23, 2022, at Fernald preserve where you will learn about the history of the site from the early native Americans to its use as a uranium processing plant from 1951 to 1989, through remediation and restoration of the site in 2006, to today. We will also learn about the many green building features throughout the preserve and the wildlife that returned to the site.

Meet us at the visitor’s center at 12:15 for lunch and history of the site. Then we will get a behind the scenes driving tour of the facility or hike the On-Site Disposal Facility and get a bird’s eye view of Fernald Preserve, weather and desire permitting. Please bring sturdy, closed -toed shoes for the outside portion of the Program.

Fun facts:
- The visitor’s center is the first platinum LEED facility in Ohio.
- Fernald was the largest environmental cleanup operations ever undertaken in U.S. history, at that time.

Stay after the Program and join some WEN folks for networking as we hike and bird the Preserve.

The Fernald Preserve is located 18 miles northwest of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.

Thank you to Lunch Sponsor GHD!
