August 16, 2011

ZANESVILLE, Ohio -- Beech. Oak. Maple. And a forest of others. Learn how to tell which is which when the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program presents “Name That Tree,” a workshop on identifying trees, on Aug. 26 in eastern Ohio.

You’ll get expert instruction and hands-on practice, both indoors on samples and outdoors on living trees. Forestry specialists with Ohio State University Extension, which runs the Stewards Program, will be the instructors.

It’s from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Friendly Hills Grange Camp and Conference Center, 5880 Friendly Hills Rd., in Zanesville. Registration costs $35, includes lunch and materials, and is due by this Friday (8/19).

OSU Extension sponsors the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry. The aim is to help people know their woods better and manage them better as well.

OSU Extension is the statewide outreach arm of Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
