Walking through the deep woods, sitting beside one of the three lakes, viewing the lettered hedge, touring the Daweswood House and gardens, telling time with the sundial, sitting in the shelter house at the Japanese Garden, relaxing on one of the many swings, enjoying the peace and quiet, listening to the birds,etc. Unending pleasures...

With the recent decision to implement a fee for access I can not recommend Dawes any longer. The Dawes Family intended access to be free for all. Not "Free with a membership", not free only on certain days, not free in specific areas only.

Admission fees? I can look at trees and bushes for free anywhere. Thanks but no thanks.

Dawes needs a new executive director who understands why Beman & Bertie Dawes set up the sanctuary. It was not for money - it was for the good of the people to be able to enjoy the beauty of nature. The new executive director should also be a peacemaker not one who causes so much dissension.

The care the staff puts in to this botanical garden and biological reserve is outstanding. The collections of species from all around the world to keep genetic integrity in tact is amazing. Only recently did I realize how vital the work the staff is to native and non-native species. They are leaders in their fields and share their passion with everyone who listens. Thank you for providing Licking County with such an amazing space!

Reverse your decision to be about the almighty dollar. This is the beginning of the ultimate doom for your lovely place. As with most things in life, greed will seal your fate.

I have lived very near to Dawes for 28years. I have enjoyed many trips to Dawes throughout those years. For my daughters and I to go for an hour long walk with our little ones it will cost $50.00 EACH TRIP. Most locals here do not go once or twice a year. Many go several times a week to walk. On our walks we see several elderly folks on the auto tour. It may not be much for one person to pay for an occasional visit, but when you have a family or are on a fixed income, it’s too much to ask. Yes you have the right to do this, but sadly many, if not most, will not show up in the spring as you anticipate. Donations will cease and the community will find a new place to go.
