On March 14, 2010 the Eastern Native Tree Society and Western Native Tree Society switched from discussion lists on Google Groups to a new discussion list in a Bulletin Board format at: http://www.ents-bbs.org/index.php  Posts made since the inception of the BBS on March 14, 2010 will be sorted and archived on the BBS. Click on the link to go to the equivalent section on the new BBS. This website will continue to serve as a front end for the ENTS and WNTS groups. It will continue to serve as a repository of older posts, and will serve as the host site for special projects and features that are not well suited for a BBS format. Please visit the BBS for the latest information and trip reports.

  • Riddle State Nature Preserve http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riddle_State_Nature_Preserve is located in central Athens County, Ohio, on the fringe of the city of Athens, Ohio. It comprises 106 acres (about 43 hectares), of which about 85 acres (about 34.5 hectares) is an old-growth forest. The old-growth forest is also known as Hawk Woods. The preserve is owned and managed by the City of Athens, with state dedication. It is part of the city's east-side preserve project, which to date includes about 280 acres (about 113 hectares) total. There are no trails in the old-growth forest area, but the Athens Trail passes through the preserve on the ridge top.
