Goll Woods included in archery hunting list 6.13

Written by David Green.

An increasing deer population, resulting in extensive damage to native plant communities, has led the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Natural Areas and Preserves to coordinate special archery deer hunts at 25 state nature preserves across the state.
 
High quality habitats at these state nature preserves, including Eagle Creek, Fowler Woods, Goll Woods and Lake Katharine, have been negatively impacted by over-browsing deer. For example, several acres of large flowered trillium-Ohio's state wildflower-have nearly disappeared at Lake Katharine State Nature Preserve because of foraging deer. Similar situations occur at 24 other sites.
 
"Conducting special management hunts enables the division to protect native plant communities in Ohio's best natural areas," said Steven Maurer, chief of the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. "An added benefit is that Ohio's hunters are given an opportunity to explore high quality areas and assist ODNR with critical land management activities."
 
There will be six (6) two-week archery hunts beginning November 2 through January 24, 2009. Hunters may harvest two (2) deer but must harvest an antlerless deer first. Antlerless deer permits are allowed.
 
To apply for the special archery hunt lotteries, applicants must send in a postcard with their name, address, daytime phone number and the hunt name (such as Lake Katharine Archery Hunt), along with a $5 processing fee. Do not send cash-checks and money orders (also note hunt name on check) must be made out to Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. Processing fees are not refundable.
 
Please submit a separate postcard and $5 processing fee for EACH hunt. Mail entries to the Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves, 2045 Morse Road, Bldg. F-1, Columbus, OH  43229.  Lottery entries must be received by September 6, 2008. Successful archery hunt applicants will be notified by mail.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
