Indian Hill Green Areas and bridle trails have been at the heart of Village life since its founding nearly 100 years ago. In recent years, this invaluable gift,  generously donated by countless residents, has been threatened by invasive plants and trails are showing signs of wear.

The Trees & Trails Foundation is working with Village leaders, as well as partner organizations, to support the control and maintenance required to preserve this treasured resource for future generations.

ABOUT THE FILM

 

In the early 1900s, Indian Hill was a checkerboard of small farms.  When the population shifted as city dwellers searched for fresh air and green areas, Indian Hill land began to transition.  Trees were planted, horse trails were created, and the roots were sown for today’s Green Areas.  Today, with the generosity of Indian Hill residents, over 3,500 acres have become a rich and diverse nature preserve that is unique in the Midwest.
