  • Cincinnati Nature Center, Rowe Woods, 4949 Tealtown Rd, Milford OH

Organization: Cincinnati Nature Center



6:00 PM  –  7:30 PM

Preregistration required for all participants. As we will be venturing off trail and crossing a creek, this program is recommended for ages 5 and up.

Program participants should meet at the Outdoor Learning Center at our Rowe Woods location.

Pawpaw trees have been hiding right here in Ohio’s backyard for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the pawpaw was named Ohio’s native state fruit. As we venture “way down yonder” to treasure hunt for ripe pawpaw fruits, we’ll explore the history, science and lore of the “Ohio Banana.”

What to wear: Long pants recommended. Choose closed-toe shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty.

Members $6; nonmembers $11 (includes admission).
