January Program Summary: Salamanders of Ohio

Posted & filed under Wild Ones Columbus Programs.

Nearly 30 people joined us Saturday morning for a virtual presentation by naturalist Doug Berube on Ohio native salamanders. Doug discussed the different types of salamanders that can be found here in Ohio, sharing his great photography along the way as well as information on the native ecosystems and plants that support them.

A recording of the presentation is also posted on our YouTube page.

Successful work day at the OSU 4-H Center

Posted & filed under Native Plant Gardening.

On Sunday, August 29th, Wild Ones Columbus members Bethany Richetti, David Kennedy, Amanda Reuter, David Williams, and board member Cecelia Jokerst worked hard to weed, edge, mulch and replace plants at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the Ohio State University campus.

This native plant garden was planted in 2018 by the Wild Ones Columbus chapter, and maintained by chapter members since then. If you would like to get involved planting native gardens in your community, we’d love for you to join our chapter!

Another great plant sale!

We had a record plant sale this year– even during a pandemic! Thank you to everyone who stopped by. We appreciate your compliance with the adjustments we had to make due to the COVID-19 situation. A big shout-out to Kathy and Don Reuter who made sure our set-up was social distancing-friendly, and to all our other volunteers who helped make this sale a success. We hope you all enjoy watching your plants grow and support native wildlife. See you next year for another one!
