Parks not only provide space for recreation and relaxation, they are important to preserving natural areas as wildlife habitat, stormwater control and more.
Examples of Natural Resource Management:
- Genoa Township Parks have systematically been converting mowed grass lawn to native Ohio prairie flowers areas. Residents love the vibrant colors they add to the landscape while increasing habitat for pollinator species and reducing emissions to the air as a result of the no-mow nature of these designated areas.
- A wildlife viewing blind was installed at Community Hall Park to provide children the opportunity to observe and learn about Ohio birds.
- A population of Purple Martins are monitored as part of an academic study at Worthington Road Park. Various other bird houses can be found throughout Township Parks.
