On March 30, 2017 TVCT completed a Conservation Easement agreement with Great Parks of Hamilton County, which will protect 123 acres of forest, forested wetland, and riparian stream corridor. Situated between Miami Whitewater Park and Fernald Preserve, the protected area includes three separate tracts: West Unit, 6.86 acres; East Unit, 7.18 acres; and Central Woods, 108.75 acres. As illustrated in the accompanying photo, a portion of the protected area supports a breeding population of Marbled Salamander.
