thumbnail for Olentangy River GreenwaySubmerged for decades, the floodplain of the Olentangy River along the OSU campus has been exposed, thanks to the demolition of the 5th Ave dam. Over the next several years, a more natural riparian ecosystem will re-establish itself, with some help by human hands. Already, I've seen dozens of cranes hunting in the newly formed shallows.
