Experience 20,000 acres of wilderness through the photographer’s lens

With over 100 plant and animal species, including woodrats, wolf spiders, mussels and bobcats, the Richard and Lucile Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve is one of the most biodiverse regions in the country. Covering more than 20,000 acres, the Edge has inspired amateur and professional naturalists both past and present. From Lucy Braun’s first days studying the Edge’s plains to today’s Boy and Girl Scouts exploring its forests, the Edge’s natural wonder continues to inspire.

Through stunning photographs and detailed specimens, you, too, will be inspired by the Edge’s seasons of growth and rebirth. A Year on the Edge features over 40 framed photographs captured by photographers Rick Conner and TJ Vissing over the course of four seasons at the Edge. The photographs, accompanied by display cases of some of the depicted specimens, brings the Edge’s year to life. Additionally, the exhibit includes the recently released film A Force for Nature: Lucy Braun. Produced by Meg Hanrahan Media and Voyageur Media Group, the documentary highlights preservation at The Edge as part of its story about the life of E. Lucy Braun.

A Year on the Edge opens March 1 in the Mallory Gallery. Admission is free.

A Year on the Edge has been developed and produced in partnership with the Ohio Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.

The Richard and Lucile Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve is co-managed by Cincinnati Museum Center and the Ohio Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.
