Eyes Along the River, 12/12

2011/11/28

Eyes Along the River – A Journey through Time, Jim Williams – formerly with the Hamilton County Park District

Join us for a story of the Ohio River. We will explore some of the natural and cultural history of the Ohio River from the late 1700’s to the present time. We will look at some of the changes that have occurred in relation to the flora, fauna and people and how transportation changed the face of the river forever.

Jim Williams was born and raised in the Greater Cincinnati area. His ancestors came to Southwest Ohio in the late 1700’s by flatboat. He grew up rambling the farms of the descendents of those early Ohio pioneers, exploring the natural beauty of the farmland and woods. Jim attended the University of Cincinnati earning a Bachelors degree in Education with a major in the Biological Sciences. While teaching botany and zoology in a Cincinnati, Ohio high school he went on to receive a MAT in botany at Miami University. Jim joined the staff of the Hamilton County Park District as a Naturalist/Educator. Later he became the Chief Naturalist/Program.
