The Wildlife Habitat Workshop-Woodlands Part 1 is the latest in the series and will take place on April 12, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The workshop will begin at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC), Adult Education Building located at 6801 Hoke Road, Clayton. After lunch, participants will get to experience hands-on education in the field at a nearby farm with woodlands, vernal pools, and more.

This woodland workshop will focus on forest ecology and habitat management and will include topics on trees, shrubs, wildflowers, mushrooms, wild turkeys, songbirds, bats, vernal pool wetlands and more.
Landowners that attend this workshop and are in the Ohio Forest Tax Law (OFTL) program will receive five hours of landowner education credits.
