Living Laboratory for Students and the Community

Students learning about counting tree rings with OSU Extension Forestry Program Director Kathy Smith.

Imagine a 640-acre classroom with gorgeous natural light and a lifetime's worth of lessons.  You can find just such a space at The Ohio State University's Mansfield Campus. A recent story in the Mansfield News Journal highlighted how the campus's woodlands are used to teach classes for students from the School of Environmental and Natural Resources.  Classes are also offered to community members interested in learning about subjects such as pollinators or woodland fungi or tree identification.  See a schedule of upcoming courses offered by the Woodland Stewards program and to learn more about the program.
