Conserving Land, Preserving History and Sharing with the Community
Our property is open to the public at no charge and includes miles of walking trails. We installed a deer fence and automated irrigation system to create a community garden. More than 40 families and a Cub Scout Pack from Mt. Lookout grew plots in the garden last year. Given the strong interest in this community activity, we tripled the size of the garden in 2011. We welcome new gardeners to Valley View. The garden brings together families and friends from across Greater Cincinnati.
A Little About Us
Valley View is a 130-acre nature preserve and education facility located near the confluence of the East Fork and Little Miami Rivers in Milford, Clermont County, Ohio. Valley View Foundation is a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation. We have an all volunteer board and a part time Executive Director - Vanessa Hannah. We were formed in 2002 by residents of Milford and others who were interested in preserving a historic farm and ecosystem for current and future generations to enjoy and learn from.
From Our President
“ On behalf of the Board of Directors of Valley View Foundation, I welcome you to our website and encourage you to visit our property, make a donation and get involved. This land truly is your land and we hope you come out and enjoy it all year round.”
Chris Habel, President of the Board of Directors

A Fun Way to Keep Kids Reading this Summer
June 11, 2013
Want a fun way to keep the kids reading this summer? We are pleased to be partnering with the Clermont County Public Library in its first ever Storywalk project. The project involves a children's storybook - Henry Hikes to Fitchburg by D.B. Johnson - that has been taken apart and presented page-by-page along a trail at Valley View. The Storywalk is free to all and starts just to the right inside our main entrance behind Pattison Elementary School. So bring the kids or grandkids out for a short hike and fun story time outdoors at Valley View. Click here for a news article about this exciting project.
Want to Get Local Farm Fresh Produce While Helping Valley View?
June 11, 2013
We are excited to be taking the plunge into community supported agriculture (CSA). Co-op gardening is a great way to get outdoors and/or regularly eat fresh, local produce. Several volunteers have graciously donated countless hours, seeds and TLC to plant almost two acres of produce for Valley View to sell in its first CSA activity. We have planted a huge variety of vegetables, herbs, greens, peppers and more in our community garden this year and we will be making available "shares" which will get you a basket of produce each week as things ripen during the season from mid-summer into early fall. There will be two prices, one for a "working share" where you commit to work with us in our garden and a regular share that gets you the produce with no obligations. In addition to feeling good about eating healthy, you can feel good about supporting Valley View because all proceeds go directly to allowing us to continue implementing our non-profit mission of conserving land, preserving history and sharing it with the community. If you are interested in purchasing a share, send us an e-mail or call 513-218-1098 about shares for this summer!!
