No trip through Wooster, Ohio is complete without a stop at Secrest Arboretum at the Ohio State University Agriculture Research Center. It is filled with a wonderful selection of plants, albeit most are non-native. That doesn't mean they are all bad. As long as a plant is not invasive and damaging to native habitats, we can still enjoy their beauty.

Greg is now leading trips with Wildside Tours, and you can join him on birding and camera trips. We have an awfully good time whenever we go out and you can enjoy a day with Greg, too.
See Greg Miller Birding for more details on Greg's whereabouts, or go to www.gmasohio.org to join Greater Mohican Audubon Society on one of their walks at Secrest Arboretum. The flowers put on quite a show!
