XENIA — Exploring one of Ohio’s best examples of a prairie fen, a group of Greene County Parks & Trails (GCP&T) volunteers enjoyed a field trip to Gallagher Fen outside Springfield recently as part of their monthly training sessions.

Gallagher Fen is home to at least 26 state-listed species within this unique wetlands environment.

GCP&T volunteers have the opportunity to attend monthly training sessions on a variety of topics, which includes at least one field trip each year. Park volunteers can choose to assist with park programs and activities, as well as special events, within the office or within the parks.
