We're very excited to announce that, at the invitation of the Columbus Landscape Association (CLA), the OLA has been offered the opportunity to co-host a very unique event on the campus of The Ohio State University. Join us on June 12, 2018, as both organizations prepare to Tour the 'Shoe.
As our two organizations come together, both members and non-members are invited to participate in a tour of The Ohio State University’s Chadwick Arboretum.
While in the garden, we will focus on identifying different insects, diseases, weeds, and other problems we come across, with experts offering insight as to why these issues are occurring, and management strategies. Pam Bennett from NLTT, along with special guest, Dr. Steven Still, will lead the plant walk.
Following an on-campus lunch - provided by our event sponsors - attendees will then be treated to a private walking tour of The Ohio State Stadium, a.k.a "The ‘Shoe."
Between the two organizations, we're planning a pretty big turn out for this event, and space will be limited. We suggest signing up ASAP to guarantee your place at what promises to be a very fun and informative event!
