Celebrate Arbor Day at the Great
Ohio Planting Day at Mohican State Park – 2017
Families are invited to celebrate Arbor Day by participating in the Keep Ohio Beautiful (KOB) annual Great Ohio Planting Day on Saturday, April 29, at 10 a.m. at Mohican State Park.
Columbia Gas of Ohio, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Mohican Lodge and Conference Center, Mohican Trails Club and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) are inviting the public to help ODNR staff and volunteers to beautify and enhance the Class A campground at Mohican State Park, which was recently impacted by the emerald ash borer.
To improve the Class A campground, people will plant 108 new trees in honor of Arbor Day. All necessary equipment and supplies will be provided at the event. Staff from sponsoring agencies will be assisting volunteers in digging holes and planting trees. In addition to tree plantings, the Arbor Day celebrations will include a hike and naturalist-led activities for participants of all ages at the park. The event will be held at the Class A campground of Mohican State Park, located at 3116 State Route 3 in Loudonville.
Funding and in-kind support for the project was awarded to KOB through Columbia Gas of Ohio’s Columbia Cares Community Engagement Program, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Mohican Lodge and Conference Center, Mohican Trails Club and ODNR. Coffee and doughnuts will be available during registration, compliments of the Mohican Trail Club. After the trees have been planted, lunch will be provided by the Mohican Lodge and Conference Center.
