Published: April 18, 2017 4:00 AM

Families are invited to celebrate Arbor Day by participating in the Keep Ohio Beautiful (KOB) annual Great Ohio Planting Day at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 29, at Mohican State Park.

Columbia Gas of Ohio, The Davey Tree Expert Co., Mohican Lodge and Conference Center, Mohican Trails Club and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) are inviting the public to help ODNR staff and volunteers to beautify and enhance the Class A campground at Mohican State Park, which was recently impacted by the emerald ash borer. To improve the Class A campground, people will plant 108 new trees in honor of Arbor Day.

All necessary equipment and supplies will be provided at the event. Staff from sponsoring agencies will assist volunteers in digging holes and planting trees. In addition to tree plantings, the Arbor Day celebrations will include a hike and naturalist-led activities for participants of all ages at the park.

The event will take place at the Class A campground of Mohican State Park, located at 3116 Ohio 3 in Loudonville. Interested participants should register by calling 330-338-8328 or by emailing mmennett@keepohiobeautiful.org.

Funding and in-kind support for the project was awarded to KOB through Columbia Gas of Ohio's Columbia Cares Community Engagement Program, The Davey Tree Expert Co., Mohican Lodge and Conference Center, Mohican Trails Club and ODNR. Coffee and doughnuts will be available during registration, compliments of the Mohican Trail Club.

After the trees have been planted, lunch will be provided by the Mohican Lodge and Conference Center.
