Welcome to The WildSide@OSU


My name is Marne Titchenell. I am the Extension Wildlife Program Specialist in the School of Environment and Natural Resources, within the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. I’ve been in this position since 2007 and really enjoy all the opportunities it provides. I’ve a passion for educating folks about Ohio’s wildlife that began with an internship with Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks. Since then, I’ve been traveling the state, sharing knowledge about wildlife and meeting some great people. To learn more about what I do, please check out my profile page.

I started The Wild Side as another way to engage with Ohio citizens on news, stories, and conversations about wildlife. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy it!
