An Introduction to the Rich Biodiversity of Mohican
The forests of Mohican harbor a wealth of plants and animals. Because of its diverse and unusual habitats, Mohican serves as a crossroad for flora and fauna from north and south. Mohican can be the Canadian north woods, dry Appalachian oak forests and rich central-Ohio forest all rolled into one fantastic park. This program will focus on the stunning and surprising natural history of our Mohican backyard.
