A DAY in the WOODS – 2nd Friday Series program set for July 13

McARTHUR— One of the first steps to improving your woodland is to learn the species of trees that grow there. With dozens of tree species on the typical woodland property in Appalachian Ohio, this can be a formidable task. The program “Identifying the Trees in Your Woods” will introduce you a simple leaf key to guide you through the process. We will begin by identifying a wide assortment of tree samples in the classroom. Later you will have the opportunity to explore the woodlands at the Vinton Furnace State Forest with foresters to reinforce your leaf identification skills. You will also begin to use other characteristics, such as bark, branching, tree shape, and location to help you to identify trees at any time of the year.

The program will be held Friday, July 13, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. A registration fee of $12 will cover the cost of lunch and program materials. Please RSVP by calling OSU Extension Vinton County at 740-596-5212, or email Dave Apsley at apsley.1@osu.edu by July 9. For brochures, directions and more information about our full slate of programs for 2018, visit http://u.osu.edu/seohiowoods.
