For the past 12 years, the Olentangy Watershed Forum has connected citizens and experts who wish to explore issues that impact the quality of life in the watershed. This year’s agenda is filled with professionals who will speak on topics pertaining common sense approaches to keep the Olentangy Watershed healthy
A new sign, focused on the streams and rivers in and around the Upper Olentangy River Watershed in Delaware, Ohio, was recently installed on campus (near Edgar Hall). Installation was made possible by Kristin Piper, Watershed Coordinator – Upper Olentangy, Delaware Ohio. Similar signs have been installed around the city of Delaware.
In the Spring of 2012 a team of students assessed the current ecological state of Delaware Run, adjacent to the academic side of the OWU campus. The ultimate goal, explored in a spring of 2014 project by a different group of students, is to re-naturalize and restore the stream, ideally with a focus on urban water, wetlands and wildlife.
