BEAVERCREEK — Maintaining Greene County Parks & Trails’ (GCP&T) 2,600 acres of parkland and 62 miles of trails is a year-round responsibility for the GCP&T Maintenance Division.

The team recently spent the day at Russ Nature Reserve in Beavercreek installing signature park fencing around a culvert for the safety of park visitors.

Russ Nature Reserve is GCP&T’s newest park site and offers hiking trails, a bluebird trail, a pond, the Lovely Nature PlayScape, a bee apiary, a high-fence garden and more. The home at the park is scheduled to be renovated into an education center. The 90-acre park at the corner of Kemp and Beaver Valley Road was donated to the park agency by the late Fritz and Dolores Russ, former owners of SRL in Beavercreek.
