The cost is $10 per person / per session or $25 per person for all three sessions. Registration deadline is one week before each session and a registration flyer can be found at http://go.osu.edu/blahs2016 or at the OSU Extension Office. Program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. and sessions are all in Room 145 of the County Services Building at 724 South 7th St. Topics and dates are as follows:

January 11- Feeding Winter Birds: Learn how to encourage winter bird activity, make bird feeders to take home using inexpensive household items, and how to enhance bird habitat in your landscape.

February 8 – The Language of Love (and Other Emotions): Floriography, or the language of plants, was used often during the Victorian era; however, flowers, plants and herbs have had religious and symbolic meanings for centuries, and still do today. We will discuss some of these plants and their meaning and make-and-take a lavender sachet.

March 14 Easter Egg Gourds: Fun and relatively easy to grow, gourds come in many shapes and sizes. Join gourd-growers in a session to learn about growing and curing various gourds and decorate some Easter Egg gourds to take home.
