Ohio State University wetland research park
View of Oletangy River Wetland Research Park
Professor Bill Mitsch of Ohio State University and Director of the Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, is visiting HOORC today. The park, on a 30 acre site owned by the Ohio State University, features two deep-water marshes, a river water delivery system, a visitors' pavilion and research facilities that support work on wetland ecology, water engineering and reconstruction. The park's web site includes an interactive map that delivers real time data about conditions in the wetland. You can find Professor Mitsch’s widely consulted reference and text book, Wetlands, in HOORC’s Library.
