What’s in Your Woods? Sign Up by Friday (7/15) to Find Out

July 13, 2011

OREGON, Ohio -- Register by Friday (7/15) for “The Woods in Your Backyard,” a workshop by the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program in northwest Ohio. Organizers say it’s “for landowners who have a small section of woods out back that they want to learn more about.”

Among the topics: Attracting more wildlife, controlling invasive species, “good” trees and shrubs and what they’re good for, and a landowner’s basic management tools, including planting, cutting, soil surveys, aerial photos and building habitat.

It’s on July 22 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Macomber Lodge in Pearson Metropark, 4701 Navarre Rd., in Oregon.

Forestry experts with Ohio State University Extension, which administers the Stewards Program, will be the instructors. 

A $35 registration fee includes lunch and materials. Online registration is available at

There will be indoor and outdoor presentations, so dress for the weather. Landowners participating in the Ohio Forest Tax Law program are eligible for 5 hours of continuing education credit.

For more information, call 614-688-3421 or e-mail

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