The Glen Helen Nature Preserve has increased its borders by another 30.5 acres. The Glen Helen Association acquired Camp Greene, which is a former Girl Scout camp on the Little Miami River.
The Girls Scouts of Western Ohio hadn't used the area for programs since 2009.
The association plans to restore the land and repair buildings. The total budget, including the purchase, is $668,000. The Upper River Fund contributed $100,000 and the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund provided $400,000 to help cover those costs.
