April 6, 2013, 8am-4pm: OVFF assists Cincinnati Zoo with Wetland Restoration!                                               

The OVFF is teaming up with the Cincinnati Zoo to replant wetlands, on a preserve of theirs, north of Mason, Ohio. We will be planting 3,000 mixed hardwood seedlings of a variety of native hardwoods. All you need to bring are some sturdy boots or shoes and maybe some gloves ( it will be wet). We will have plenty of shovels and planting bars along with some gloves. Bring a friend or come and meet some new friends. If you need to come later or need to leave early, no worries – even a couple hours of your time will make a difference. Food and drinks will be provided.


Where: 2210 Mason-Montgomery Rd., 3 miles north of Mason Ohio. Take I-71 north to the Fields Ertel exit and go north on Mason-Montgomery Rd. through Mason and 3 miles north of Mason there will be an old barn on the right. Look for the OVFF banner just past the barn. 2/10th of a mile past the barn, Mason-Montgomery ends at Hamilton Rd.


Rain date or finish up date will be April 7th

The OVFF is also working with the Ohio DNR Clermont Co. ALB replanting project. They have a replanting project on April 20th to replace trees taken down due to the Asian Longhorn Beetle. The trees to be replanted are potted with approximately 1” trunks. They are planning on planting 100-200 trees. The project is to assist local homeowners who have lost trees and they are looking for volunteers to help.
