“Woodland Stewardship Opportunities” program offered at the Vinton Furnace State Forest on Friday, July 12th

Families, just like yours, own approximately 3/4 of the 8.1 million acres of woodlands in Ohio. Yet often folks do not know where to turn for advice and assistance when they need it. This program is specifically designed for you, the family woodland owner. It will cover a wide range of resources that are available to help you care for the woodlands on your property. There are many different reasons to manage your woodlands, and several of those options will be discussed at this program. Foresters, wildlife biologists, and other natural resource professionals from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Ohio State University Extension will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss how they can help you to improve the health of your woodland.

This program will take place on July 12 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at the Vinton Furnace State Forest, near McArthur, OH.
