You can now order Ohio State Maple Syrup online and have it delivered to your home. The syrup, while from maples, is totally Buckeye:
- It comes from a sugar bush envisioned, started, and run by students in CFAES’ School of Environment and Natural Resources.
- The nearly 20-acre sugar bush is located at the Ohio State Mansfield campus, about 70 miles north of Columbus. It’s part of the campus’s EcoLab.
- The sales help benefit Ohio State students. The proceeds fund scholarships for students at the EcoLab.

Doing good for bumble bees takes finding out what’s bad for them.
Sarah Scott, a CFAES entomology doctoral student, is studying how the fuzzy, buzzy, black-and-yellow pollinators get exposed to heavy metals in their environment—and what it can mean to their survival.

You’re invited to spend An Evening with Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory, partner Ohio State programs dedicated to studying, teaching about, and improving Lake Erie and water quality, from 6:30–9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, on Ohio State’s Columbus campus.
Later this week, you can trade some green for an evergreen and help CFAES students when you do it.
Buy a poinsettia at one of CFAES’ two upcoming sales, and you’ll brighten both your home and some students’ lives as Buckeyes.
