Friday, June 5 - Virtual Escape to the Forest - Forest Insects: Native and Non-Native

Published on


The OSU's Ohio Woodland Stewards Program in the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) is offering online Friday's in the Forest during this pandemic.


Next Friday you can join OSU’s Amy Stone and Joe Boggs as we look at some native forest insects and some non-native forest insects.  Insects that create ‘tents’, insects that dance, along with insects that create galls and insects that suck sap – something for everyone.  The virtual session will be offered on Friday, June 5, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. 


There is no cost for the session, but you must pre-register. Here is the online link to register:


ISA and SAF credits will be offered at the conclusion of the webinar.  This will be recorded and later available on the Woodland Stewards website under the Resources tab.
