About this event

The young prairie in the Tecumseh Natural Area at The Ohio State University at Lima is growing. So are the invasive species that want to move in and crowd out our native plants. As part of the WeServe community service initiative on campus, faculty, staff and students are invited to come together for a few hours to “take a stab” at removing the invasive teasel before it goes to seed.

DETAILS OF THE DAY

Tuesday, July 30, 2024 • 9 a.m.-noon |

Rain date: Wednesday, July 31

We will be cutting teasel stems in an area that is home to insects and lit by the sun. Wear sturdy shoes, gloves, long pants and sunscreen. If you have comfortable clippers, bring them along. Branch loppers and shrub shearers also work.

The Ohio State Lima Prairie is located on the corner of Reservoir and Mumaugh roads. Parking is available in the gravel lot off Mumaugh.
