” A Day in the Woods-2nd Friday Series” is designed to provide landowners and folks with an interest in natural resources opportunities to learn about and care for woodlands. The 12,000 acre Vinton Furnace State Forest is one the premier research and demonstration forests in the United States, and it’s right in our back yard near McArthur.
“A Day in the Woods” provides you with multiple occasions to interact with foresters, wildlife biologists, natural resources professionals and your peers in a setting that is ideal for learning about southeastern Ohio’s woodlands. Beginning on May 8th with “A Night in the Forest,” the “2nd Friday Series” will offer day-long programs on a variety of topics through November 13.
