OSU Mansfield campus is a good fit for the Woodland Stewards Program

An article in onCampus, A living lab for Woodland Stewards (OWS), by Christina Drain, was about how 30 woodland owners practiced what they learned in an outdoor lab on the Mansfield campus. There are 640 acreas of woodlands on the campus which play a big role in the courses offered through the OWS program. More information about the project can be found in the Septmeber-October publication of the OSU Alumni magazine.

Students from the May session suggested creating a terrestrial lab similar to Stone Laboratory, the university’s freshwater field station on Lake Erie, with summer classes and coursework unique to the natural resource.
