Have you checked out "The Gwynne" at FSR yet?!

The Gwynne Conservation Area is a unique area at the Farm Science Review (FSR) that spotlights conservation and natural resources. During The Show Sept 20-22, you can learn more about cool things happening in our 67 acres of woodlands, prairies, tree plantations, bird boxes, pond area, wetlands research, and honey bee habitat. We’ve even got a bat house and a butterfly garden!

Our CFAES professionals are studying soils, habitats, and plants that you might have in your own backyard, community garden, or a farm or wooded area near you. Lots of hands-on projects that go on throughout the year will be on full display this week; and there are many educational sessions held at The Gwynne too. Come to FSR in London, Ohio, take a short shuttle ride over to The Gwynne, and learn SO much more!

The Gwynne Conservation Area is a 67-acre demonstration and education area for agriculture and natural resources management practices. The Gwynne is located in Madison County at the Ohio State University’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London Ohio. A committee of resource professionals from Ohio’s natural resource agencies oversees educational programming and policy at the Conservation Area.

During Farm Science Review, join us for programs, displays, and activities on agriculture, conservation, and natural resources. Check out the 2022 Gwynne schedule and map.

Plus, any time of the year, you can check out conservation practices installed in a variety of habitats inspire and educate landowners every day. In addition, environmental and educational organizations use the Natural Resources Interpretive Center for programs and meetings.
