                   Flora-Quest evolves...

    This year we are embracing 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 and outings on
    Aug or Sept, 2015 will explore the waterfalls, ferns, mushrooms and hemlock
    trees of the Clear Fork river gorge. We will take one day to understand
    Mohican's ecosystems and a second day to learn how they are impacted by
    agriculture.  

    We will visit 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."

    Please join us in Mohican Forest and Plesant Valley, there is much to learn and
    love about this land. Whether the quest you choose visits waterfalls, the
    counter-facing trails of the river gorge, or an aquatic adventure, come home to
    Mohican.  We are ready for you.
