Rush Run Park; a great example of wild/urban: A natural spring: hosts tons of animal life

Tuesday, April 19th, 2022 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm (ET)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Rush Run Park surrounds Rush Run Creek which is a natural spring that feeds into the Olentangy river.  Before Rush Run Creek enters the Olentangy River it forms natural Branch barriers that filter the water by collecting garbage and debris. April is a perfect time to go in and get the garbage out of these collection areas before they get washed into the Olentangy. 

Rush Run Park is a great example of the Co-existence of Urban and Wild landscapes. Because of the Rush Run spring there is a huge diversity of birds and wildlife that visit the park year round. As we build our green spaces here in Columbus we should look to parks such as the Rush Run Park as an example of coexistence and what we get to do, to protect our native plants and animals as well as expand parks like Rush Run.
