Bedford Heights Property Acquisition
A Clean Ohio Fund grant was awarded to the City of Bedford Heights to purchase a 17-acre forested parcel with 850 linear feet of tributary to Tinker’s Creek. The parcel connects to an existing park in the city and could potentially provide additional walking trails. TCWP provided support for the grant application, in particular riparian planting.
TCWP, along with Western Reserve Land Conservancy (WRLC), coordinated a planting event where 500 potted trees and shrubs as well as 400 live stake plants were installed. Over 20 volunteers assisted in the planting event, including volunteers from the City of Bedford Heights, Cleveland Metroparks, and WRLC.
