False Brome!

On Saturday, February 25, Lori McGovern and student volunteers from OSU Instructor, Steve Cook’s, GEO 300 class, worked on the elimination of the invading False Brome. These students must do a service project for their GEO class and for that project they spent at least 4 hours tackling the False Brome at Hesthavn. False Brome seems to be one of the biggest unwanted species invaders at Hesthavn during this past year. If you would like to donate some time to help with future restoration projects, please contact our volunteer link at Our thanks go to Susan Brown, who has diligently recorded Hesthavn’s history from 1997, when work was first starting on the conversion of the horse stable and corral to the Hesthavn Nature Center it is today. Susan has just completed the 3rd album of Hesthavn memories beginning with January 2008, up to the present. This album will be on display at the March General Meeting and then on display at Hesthavn with the other 2 completed volumes. I hope you’ll take the time to look through this lovely collection of memorabilia archiving the history of Hesthavn.
