Nearly all of the Valley View property lies below the 100-year floodplain of the East Fork of the Little Miami River. This picture was taken during a severe storm in May 2003 and shows the Valley View fields flooded with several feet of water.
Valley View has about 35 acres of wooded stream side forest. These thick woods border the East Fork River and are lined with deer trails and walking trails that lead from our Prairie to the East Fork.
Since we acquired our property, we have reintroduced several acres of native tallgrass prairie using donated seed. The grass species we have planted are those that existed in these fields and throughout the region thousands of years ago when the Native Americans arrived here.
