    We know what you’re thinking. What do syrup and salamanders have in common?! Bring the family to the OSU Mansfield Campus this leap year, and it will all make sense. The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Science faculty, staff, and extension educators are working with the campus to manage its 600+ acres of woodlands. There are many exciting areas to tour on campus, such as a new sugar bush (the place where trees are tapped for maple syrup) and a vernal pool that is home to salamanders!

    Fungi of many types can be found in every woodlot throughout Ohio.  They get overlooked, ignored and/or avoided by visitors to the woods because people don't know what they are, have limited knowledge or have been misinformed as to their importance or dangers.  Fungi are quite intriguing once one gets to know them, their life histories, their ecological importance and their diversity.  Come join us for a day in the woods of learning what these fascinating organisms are and the beauty they possess.
