    Welcome to the Hocking Hills Region

    These Hills Are Alive!

    The OCVN chapter in the Hocking Hills Region was formed in 2008, soon after our first class finished OCVN training. To date, we have had five classes and have graduated about 100 people. We all feel fortunate to be involved in our region of the state. Our local history and natural environment is rich and diverse. We look forward to sharing as much as we can with the rest of the state at the 2015 OCVN State Conference being held this year at Camp Oty'Okwa.
