“Native Grasslands and Pollinator Habitat” offered by A DAY in the WOODS to woodland owners and enthusiasts in SE Ohio at Meigs Conservation Area on Friday, July 12th

Southeastern Ohio is blessed with an abundance of woodlands most of which (76%) is owned by family forest owners like you. Every property is unique for various reasons including topography, soils and geology, land-use and management history and types of vegetation present. Many of these properties contain areas suitable for native grasslands and pollinator habitat. Family forest owners are also unique and have a wide variety of reasons for owning their woodlands from enjoying nature and wildlife to supplementing income from timber and non-timber forest products. However, one thing that many family forest owners have in common is their desire to improve the health and condition of their woodlands. For you to set realistic goals for your woodland and to make progress toward these goals it is important to understand its current condition which can determine its future potential.
