You’ve read about CFAES insect scientist Mary Gardiner’s research on Cleveland’s vacant lots here, for example, and here. Now you can hear her in person. She presents “Managing Vacant Land to Support Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services” in the Department of Horticulture and Crop Sciences’ spring seminar series from 11:30 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. Wednesday at Ohio State in Columbus. You can watch by video link, too, at CFAES’s research arm, OARDC in Wooster. Find out more. Gardiner is also the author of last year’s Good Garden Bugs: Everything You Need To Know About Beneficial Predatory Insects (Quarry Books).
