What it is: Join us for some honeysuckle whacking at the Kirby Nature Center! If you never done this before, no special skills are needed. But it's really important! Removal of honeysuckle, an invasive species, is really critical to allow native plants to survive.

Project Leaders: John 513.304.2310 and Matt 513.604.6728

How to get there: The Kirby Nature Center is located at 2 Main Street, Addyston, OH 45001, just off River Road. To get there from north and east of Addyston, go west on Cleves Warsaw into Addyston, where the name changes to Main Street. Continue past South Road – there is a storage building on the corner on the right, then a stone wall with an opening for a driveway flanked by large stone pillars. Turn in the driveway - this is it!

If you are coming from the west or are close to Route 50, take 50 into Addyston and turn onto Dinning Lane, the small connector street opposite Ineos. Go right on Main, go past First and Second Streets and continue up the hill then down the next slope. You will see the stone walls and opening with the large pillars on your left (this is it again). If you get to South Road, you just passed it.

Additional information:
- Dress appropriately for the weather and wear shoes suitable for the woods. It could be muddy.
- The Kirby Nature Center does have bathrooms.
- Bring your favorite handsaw, loppers and gardening gloves.
