Cincinnati Chapter

Cincinnati, OH Blog

We are fortunate to be able to offer a walking tour of the recently opened Lick Run Greenway in Cincinnati’s South Fairmount neighborhood.

The Greenway improves water quality by carrying rainwater directly to Mill Creek from the Lick Run watershed, preventing over 800 million gallons of overflow per year by avoiding contact with the city sewer system. In addition to being an engineering feat, the mile-long urban stream and pond is a public park that includes walking and biking paths, a recreation area, and signage to educate visitors on the historic and cultural heritage of the Greenway and South Fairmount.

Speakers from Gray & Pape, Human Nature, Kolar Design, and the Metropolitan Sewer District will share stories of the teamwork that brought this remarkable community resource into existence.

The event is free and open to all, but please RSVP to allow us to estimate a head count. Link to RSVP:

Meeting Location: We will meet at or near the Shelter House by the public parking lot at 1645 Queen City Avenue. Look for us holding an "SEGD Tour" sign! Here is a map.

Join us for the first instalment of our Northeast Region Speaker Series: Street+Art.

As the weather gets nicer and we start spending more time outside, it's time to pay attention to our city streets again. All around us street artists are transforming concrete walls into moments of beauty and placemaking. Their work has the power to uplift communities and inspire change.

For this multi-city speaker series we have invited both artists and the organizations that facilitate their work through the city. Our speakers will take us on a virtual tour of their work showing us what they do and they how connect with the community.
