This event is designed for, but not limited to, landowners from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. It is sponsored by the Ohio Woodland Stewards program, run by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.

Sessions will focus on new know-how, tools and techniques; all are meant to further improve the health and stewardship of a woodland. Experts from Ohio State, Purdue University and the University of Kentucky will address:

  • Woodlands, including maps, land plans, tree identification, woodland certification, determining the value of trees and timber, and invasive species such as the Asian longhorned beetle and thousand cankers disease of walnut trees.
  • Wildlife, such as food plots, game cameras, woodland butterflies, deer and wild turkey management, and the insect life in woodland pools and ponds.
  • The cool and unusual, like woodland fungi (such as morels), identifying animal skulls and an intriguingly titled topic called “Weird Things in Your Woods.”

Registration, which includes lunch, is $45 before March 17, and $55 from March 18 to March 24.
