Flora-Quest 2015 is in the making!
Flora-Quest 2014 was held in Marblehead, Ohio. It was a great success
thanks to the expert guides from ONAPA who led our field trips to see the
globally rare Lakeside Daisy.

Established in 2007, Flora-Quest is a hand’s-on botanical adventure
focusing on native plants and the conservation of natural areas. Originally
centered at the Shawnee State Park and Forest, Ohio’s largest contiguous
forest, Flora-Quest promotes natural areas and healthy eco-systems
We had seven fabulous years in Shawnee, but we took our show on the
road in 2014. Flora-Quest partnered with Ohio Natural Areas and Preserves
Association to explore the rare Lakeside Daisy and alvar habitats
in Marblehead, Ohio.
We are fortunate to have some of Ohio’s most gifted botanists and
naturalists leading Flora-Quest expeditions. Their leadership is invaluable
and most of our guides are also well-versed in other facets of
naturalhistory, such as birds, butterflies, and geology. Their willingness to
share their knowledge adds to enjoyment of the trips.
This year we will be focusing on the habitats of Mohican State Park and
Forest and Malabar Farm State Park. Come see mid-Ohio though the eyes
of seasoned naturalists and discover the wonders of our water and land, as
well as the botanical and biological forms found therein.
