Located in the midst of two turn-of-the-century neighborhoods, Glen Echo Ravine and stream comprise a surprisingly rich ecological space on the north side of Columbus, Ohio. Hundreds of species of birds, mammals, amphibians, insects, trees, and plants coexist in a unique ravine environment within steps of homes and businesses and just minutes from downtown. Continued improvement of this distinguishing and defining part of these communities will benefit the environment, residents, and businesses in Old North Columbus and Clintonville.
Glen Echo Ravine also serves as a significant ecological corridor running from the Olentangy River (on the west) eastward to I-71.
The Coalition United for Glen Echo Ravine (CUGER), formed to protect and restore the ravine, envisions the intersection of High Street and Glen Echo Ravine as a unique urban ecological hub that will be a defining part of our neighborhoods, Columbus, and Central Ohio long into the future.
