We decided to check out the recently-opened, still-under-development Miller Nature Preserve in Avon, Ohio. Though inside city limits, the preserve consists of 78 acres of wooded land, now set aside as a natural green space. Congratulations to Avon and Lorain County for giving yourselves this great gift! Sitting at the edge of the wooded expanse is a lovely nature center with a 5,000 square-foot conservatory. We had a very relaxing time walking amongst the tropical plants, enjoying their shapes and colors in the late-afternoon February sun. We’ll return this summer to explore trails on the property. Until then, we were very impressed by the great indoors.
