Clermont SWCD is offering a scholarship to one high school student in Clermont County to attend Camp Canopy, formerly known as Ohio Forestry & Wildlife Conservation Camp. The scholarship will cover half the registration cost. Camp Canopy will take place from June 10-15 at the Muskingum FFA camp in Carrollton, OH. For information on how to apply for the scholarship, email Judy Krebs, SWCD Education Specialist, or call her at 513-732-7075 ext. 5.
Clermont SWCD, along with representatives from ODNR-Forestry, OSU Extension, and USDA are planning an open house to answer questions regarding private timber harvesting operations.
With the loss of ash trees across the region, many landowners are faced with difficult decisions on what to do with their properties. This opportunity will allow landowners to gain knowledge and meet forestry experts that can assess their situation and provide guidance on how to successfully manage their properties. There will also be opportunities to speak with an urban forester on those properties with just a few or no trees.
Please stop by our office on October 25th between the hours of 3-7 pm. Obtain maps, learn about funding for timber management and invasive control (sorry-still no ash tree removal funding), and threats and opportunities that could affect your forest.
