Think Spring---Salamander Hike:  This hike will be on ONE of the following dates:  Friday, February 22nd, March 1st, or March 8th at 7:00 pm at the Caesar Creek Visitor Center.  Nature's timing is unpredictable and in order to make sure we have the best chance to actually see them migrating to their breeding ponds, the actual hike date will be determined on the Wednesday before the hike. Together we will search for salamanders as they awaken from hibernation and move toward their breeding ponds. There is no cost for this event and no experience is necessary. This is an adventure for the entire family. Please dress for the weather; boots and a flashlight are essential.  Remember, salamanders prefer to move in the rain, so be prepared for muddy fun!  To register for this event please contact the visitor center at 513-897-1050.


  • Caesar Creek Pioneer Village

  • Blood Moon Jan. 20-21!  Why does the Moon turn red during a lunar eclipse?  "That happens because sunlight filtering through Earth's air gets redder (that's why the Sun looks redder at sunset), and from the Moon during totality all the light is filtered through Earth's air. Only the red gets through to illuminate the Moon, making it look red."  Learn more...
