    As you may be aware, The Ohio State University has announced the suspension of face-to-face instruction of lectures, discussion sections, seminars, and other similar classroom settings, and the move to virtual instruction effective immediately and through at least Monday, March 30. Also, events deemed nonessential between now and April 20 are subject to review, to evaluate whether they should continue in person. Based on these guidelines, we have decided to cancel the 2nd Annual Soil Science Research Day Symposium scheduled for March 19th beginning at 2:30pm. Please inform your department of this change.  One of the best ways to prevent the spread of viral illnesses is to minimize the circumstances in which individuals might interact and transmit the diseases. The safety of our community is our top priority. We realize that our COVID-19 policy guidelines will cause disruption, but the risk of not acting outweighs the inconvenience of these temporary measures. We will share updates as more information becomes available. Learn how we’re working to keep our communities safe.

    Public Open House on March 4th: Let’s Talk Trees  Join us on Wednesday, March 4, from 6-8 p.m. at Wyandot Lodge at 3228 Indian Village Road, Columbus for an open house to talk about trees!  Columbus Recreation and Parks Department is creating the Urban Forestry Master Plan, which will help preserve, maintain and increase our tree canopy. All input will be used to develop the plan so your attendance is crucial! A Facebook event for the open house is here: A flyer is attached, too. Please RSVP for the public open house by going to: We hope to see you there! Everyone is invited to stop by anytime between 6-8 p.m. There will be a brief presentation at 6:30 p.m. about Columbus’ current tree canopy. If you can’t attend the public open house on March 4, feel free to fill out this survey and share your thoughts here: Columbus trees cover 22 percent of the city. We know tree canopy is a critical part of high quality of life. Trees reduce cases of asthma and other health ailments, boost property values, make business districts more successful, reduce water pollution, air temperatures and more. Tell us: Should we have more trees? Where do we need them? What are our biggest hurdles for improving tree canopy in Columbus? What does your neighborhood need? What is the Urban Forestry Master Plan? The Columbus Urban Forestry Master Plan is a strategic and long-term investment in Columbus' tree canopy. Our tree canopy is vulnerable to threats from disease, pests, the changing climate and increased development. Columbus is expecting 1 million more residents by 2050. Efforts like the Urban Forestry Master Plan need to happen now to ensure residents' quality of life in the coming decades. This plan will engage stakeholders (both internal and external to city departments), review current operations and policies impacting trees, and recommend strategies for improvements.
