Welcome to Northside Greenspace Inc.

Northside Greenspace Inc. is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization founded to identify, preserve and restore natural areas in Northside and surrounding Cincinnati, Ohio communities.

Our workshops and lectures provide information concerning the issues and processes influencing our community natural areas. Our field trips provide community members with the opportunity to experience the beauty and interest of nature.

Our volunteer work projects provide hands on learning experiences for community members and result in tangible improvements to our greenspaces. Our advocacy alerts public and private agencies and individuals to what they can and should be doing to conserve and improve greenspaces. Check out this 2009 article, The War on Honeysuckle, from Cincinnati Magazine that discusses honeysuckle as an invasive species in Cincinnati woods and Buttercup Valley Preserve.

Mothing

If you love butterflies, you may want to learn about moths, another member of the Lepidoptera order of insects. Viewed up close, moths often rival butterflies in beauty and features.

The public is invited to attend a program on moths at the Northside Greenspace, Inc. annual meeting.

Mothing enthusiast Mary Jo White and Mothapalooza coordinator Mary Ann Barnett will give a fascinating photo presentation of native Southern Ohio moths. Weather permitting; they will set up a mothing station for viewing and photography afterward. The program follows a brief business meeting. Refreshments served.

Check out the Mothapalooza website for more information and beautiful photos.

Call 542-2909 for more information.
