About this Location

The Myeerah Nature Preserve is 450 acres and is maintained by the Bellefontaine Joint Recreation District. Myeerah is open from dawn to dusk for patrons to explore.

Myeerah Nature Preserve is a unique patchwork of woodlands in west-central Ohio. It includes rolling hills with managed meadows, second growth-mature woodlots, dissected deep ravines lined by slate rock creeks, a 10-acre pond, and a half-acre pond.

A former Girl Scout camp in the City of Bellefontaine has been permanently conserved as a new public park. For more than fifty years Camp Myeerah had been a popular overnight camping destination.

In 2012, The Girl Scouts of Western Ohio Board of Directors commissioned a study to guide long-term planning. The study recommended that the Girl Scouts investigate options to sell Camp Myeerah and focus on options that allowed continued usage by Girl Scouts. Working with the Tri-Moraine Audubon Society, The Trust for Public Land, and the City of Bellefontaine, the Girl Scouts were able to sell and conserve the 449-acre camp as a public recreation destination last month.
