Love Your Little Miami Campaign
Funding the future of the river we love

The Little Miami National Wild and Scenic River is a beauty!  World-class nature in your backyard.  Scenic, sensational waters.  Family fun at every bend.


From being a severely polluted river in 1967, the Little Miami is now in the top 10% of healthy river ecosystems in Ohio. Its clean waters are home to 74 species of rare and sport fish, more than a dozen species of freshwater mussels, and 255 species of birds, including the Bald Eagle and Great Blue Heron.

LMC needs your help to make sure this river stays this way. Each fall we renew our commitment to river conservation and education by asking our supporters to "Love Your Little Miami"!

How to Get Involved

For Individuals

For the business community

LMC relies not only on individuals, but also on our business community. One great example of this started in 2020 when three of our local canoe liveries joined the Love Your Little Miami campaign in a big way. These liveries recognized the amazing resource we have in the Little Miami River and  funded the future of the river by donating a portion of their annual sales to LMC. Watch the below video for a summary of the 2020 campaign raising almost $60,000!
