The public is invited to a special open house at the Shaker Trace Nursery in Miami Whitewater Forest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m on Saturday, July 26.

The Shaker Trace Open House is a free, rain-or-shine event that includes guided tours of the 51-acre nursery, a meet-and-greet with nursery staff and volunteers and light refreshments.

Visitors will see where native seeds are grown, harvested, processed and stored, and learn about other natural resource stewardship activities.

They also are welcome to visit the nursery’s five aquaculture ponds, which are used to raise hybrid bluegill for stocking Great Parks of Hamilton County fishing lakes.

Shaker Trace Nursery first was developed in 1992 to produce native prairie and wetland seed for restoration  at MWF.

Seed producing plants continue to be hand-raised, thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers and staff.

The nursery now has more than 200 species of native plants, with the seed being used in restoration efforts throughout the Great Parks.

A valid Great Parks of Hamilton County Motor Vehicle Permit ($10 annual; $3 daily) is required to enter the park.

For more information, visit greatparks.org, or call 521-7275.
