Many times, landowners think of managing their properties for either forest-specific or wildlife-specific reasons. In reality, managing for one of those reasons will manage both. ‘Forest Wildlife Habitat Relationships’ will help you understand how managing for the forest can benefit the wildlife or vice versa. This program will be offered Friday, October 13, 2023 at Vinton Furnace State Forest. It will give you the opportunity to:

  • Understand the elements of wildlife habitat found in our woodlands and natural areas in SE Ohio
  • Learn about many of the wildlife species (game and non-game) that inhabit southeast Ohio
  • Understand what you can do to enhance wildlife habitat on your property
