Melvin, Ruth W.
To this new and updated second edition, over 160 new sites and their description have been added. The first major section, outdoor education areas, includes state Parks, forests, and wildlife areas; historic sites and memorials; Wayne National Forest; metropolitan county and city parks; agency and private camps; conservation agency properties; conservancy district lands and reservoirs; school land laboratories; and private conservation farms and camp grounds. The second section is devoted to selected state, nature conservancy, university, and private nature preserves. In both sections, each outdoor area summary is arranged alphabetically according to county and includes size and location, correct name, a short description, and the address of the person to contact for its use. Additional information concerning suitability for camping is given in chart form in the third section. Seven color maps describing Ohio geology, glacial deposits, soil regions, surface water, groundwater, original vegetation, and major forest types follow. Also included are a selected bibliography, and index of sites, and directions for using this publication. (MA)
