Medicinal Plant Walk and Plant Sale at Mercer Woods Preserve
Explore AOA’s beautiful 116-acre Mercer Woods Preserve on the border of Hocking and Fairfield Counties. We will walk parts of the property to survey and identify native medicinal plants growing on the site. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about threatened species such as American Ginseng, Goldenseal, and Black Cohosh, their preferred habitats, and techniques for growing them on your own property. Historical and contemporary medicinal uses of the plants will be discussed as well as their greater ecological significance (pollinators, seed dispersers, wildlife value).
This event will be led by Erika Galentin, MNIMH, medical herbalist and former Outreach Coordinator for United Plant Savers and Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary. Erika will also have native medicinal plants for sale from Companion Plants nursery.
To the 250 friends, partners, volunteers, exhibitors and collaborating organizations who participated in and helped make this event such a big success – and our largest event to date! Your support is greatly appreciated and directly responsible for our conservation achievements.

September – November 2016
When we consider what it took to create this landscape, we must also consider what we can do to insure that future generations will also be able to marvel at its beauty.
The scenic views, diversity of plants and wildlife, and quiet times in the country will all be enhanced by the security of knowing that things can stay this way into the future.
In the end, I decided to sell my property to AOA because I love it so much. It was hard to part with it – but I am not really parting with it – it is there forever thanks to AOA.
