Celebrate Earth Day with a waterfall and campfire near Dayton this weekend

There is no single way to celebrate Earth Day. However, we think a campfire at a waterfall is pretty appropriate one.

Miami County Park District and Charleston Falls Preserve is hosting a good old fashioned campfire this Earth Day, complete with story telling and legends. Charleston Falls is home to one of Ohio’s most stunning waterfalls. Before the fire begins at 9 p.m. is a perfect opportunity to celebrate Mother Earth’s big day by standing in awe of the falls.
