Thursday, August 17, 2023 - 6:30pm
Mahoning Country Extension Office - 490 S Broad St. Canfield

The Naturalist Series invites subject matter experts to share their knowledge and research regarding different aspects of nature. Subjects range from animals, plants, insects, and more. All these events are $5 ($30 for the whole series) and occur at 6:30 pm in the Mahoning County Extension Office. 

  • My Mahoning River- A River of Opportunity
    • The Mahoning River built the communities it flows through, but overtime became the region’s dumping grounds.  Water quality in the river deteriorated because of pollution and the placement of low head dams. Today, through incredible dedication, teamwork, and a strong vision the river is rebounding into a river of opportunity. Join us as we discuss the water quality improvements undergoing in the Mahoning River and the opportunities that await it!
    • Speaker: Stephanie Dyer, Environmental Program Manager, Eastgate Regional Council on Governments
