Damp Saturday for a Spring Walk in Davey Woods

This past Saturday was the last event of the Hot or Cold in Champaign County series - a walk in Davey Woods. And it was a day with showers and a lot of damp conditions but no rain during the two hour walk around the 0.6 mile trail. Good thing it was a short hike because it took us the whole two hours to make it. Local forester Steve McGinnis was great - telling us the history of Davey Woods, identifying trees, reporting on the habitat of the trees and explaining how we manage our forests in Ohio for timber production - although not in Davey Woods.

Several of the folks on the trip were also identifying wild flowers that were popping out as we walked.
