Tour and Walk Gorman Nature Farm & Trosset Woods
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Carol Trosset to learn about the woods of her childhood home and the history of her parents wildflower rescue efforts, the detailed records kept by her mother on 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!
We will meet at Gorman Heritage Farms visitor center and tour the Trosset Wildflower Sanctuary, an area protected from deer that hosts a variety of ephemeral wildflower species. Although this area is best in the Spring, the story is sure to inspire you to look at your yard in a new way! We will have the option to carpool to Carol’s parents property.
