Service in the Preserves: Gott Fen
October 14, 2017 @ 7:45 am - October 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Our trip to Gott Fen in Portage County, originally scheduled for 2017 April, was cancelled. So let’s try again this October! Our primary task will be removing invasive Buckthorn.
Please note that this is a two-day (overnight) trip. Meet at 7:45 AM on Saturday in the parking lot inside the gate house at the Ohio Department Natural Resources Complex, 2045 Morse Road, Columbus to travel in the ODNR van to the site. Please call Katryn Renard by the preceding Wednesday at (614) 261-7171 to sign up, reserve space for transportation, and to help us determine tool requirements. No special skills are required, but do bring your lunch, water, work gloves and appropriate foot gear. You will need to complete the Dept. of Natural Area’s volunteer form to participate in this activity. We will return to ODNR by 5:00 on Sunday.
The Service in the Preserves program is a partnership with Columbus Audubon and Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Volunteers from CA go to various State Nature Preserves about once every six weeks during the school year. We work on projects that range from invasive species removal to building boardwalks. This is especially important now during these lean times of budget cuts throughout ODNR.
