All forest stages have special ecological roles, but the old-growth stage is especially important. It’s significant for many bird species as well as insects, fungi, reptiles and amphibians. Old-growth forests are one of the few land uses where topsoil is created instead of destroyed, and they are critical to our air and water quality. Northwest Ohio has three forests designated as “Old-Growth Forests,” including one at Secor Metropark. Join the founder of the Old-Growth Forest Network, Dr. Joan Maloof, as she talks about these special places and why we should help protect them.
