        A synopsis of Flora-Quest 2015: see our blog

    This year we embraced a new habitat, the hemlock forests and uplands of
    Mohican State Forest. Mohican’s hemlock eco-systems hold the key to Ohio's
    largest and rarest salamander, the Hellbender.  Our conference on Aug 27-29,
    2015 explored the waterfalls, ferns, aquatic life and hemlock trees of the Clear
    Fork river gorge. We will took one day to understand Mohican's
    ecosystems and a second day to learn how they are impacted by agriculture.  

    We visited Malabar Farm, home of  author Louis Bromfield, to learn about
    this 1940's visionary and the beautiful old growth forest trees and wetlands he
    protected. Bromfield helped us to understand good farming practises are vital
    to healthy aquatic systems, which impact the hellbender and the people in
    Pleasant Valley and beyond.  Will we honor the Bromfield legacy which feeds
    the land and protects our natural heritage, or will Ohio be a land of extraction?
    Since 2007, we have been educating Ohioans to their unique botanical
    communities.  It is Flora-Quest's goal to connect citizens with their natural
    heritage. In the words of Baba Dioum, "In the end we will only conserve what
    we love, love what we understand, and understand only what we are taught."

    In Mohican Forest and Pleasant Valley, there is much to learn and love about
    this land. Whether you choose to visits waterfalls, the counter-facing trails of
    the river gorge, or an aquatic adventure, come home to Mohican.
