Workday & Bioblitz at Trosset Woods
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Carol Trosset at the woods of her childhood home to learn the history of her parents wildflower rescue efforts, the detailed records kept by her mother about this 1 acre property starting from the 1950’s that tell us what a difference a wooded acre can make to wildlife in the city. These records also indicate the changing bloom times of our native species over the years due to climate change. Select native wildflowers are currently being moved to Gorman Heritage Farms for further preservation and public enjoyment. Restoring and maintaining woods makes sense in SW Ohio that was covered in forest at one time. This is an inspiring story!
This will be a work day too. Carol has organized a Bioblitz with some experts in various fields to identify species of plants, butterflies, birds, herps etc.. You have the choice to join one of the leaders to help ID species, or you can join the crew who will be removing invasives. There is much to do and learn! Although this program is scheduled for two hours, you can stay as long as you like, as Carol and some of the leaders will be there most of the day. No public restrooms or water available. We will carpool from Village Crossing Shopping Center. Street address is 10400 Reading Road, which is the southeast corner of Reading and Glendale-Milford. Park toward the east end of the lot, near Aldi and JOANN Fabrics but away from the shops.Look for additional information to be emailed before the event.
