Research on the Ridges – Part 2

South of Ohio University’s main campus lies The Ridges, a 740-acre tract of forests and farmland. The abandoned orchards on the grounds from The Ridges’ days as an asylum are known today as the Land Lab, a place where Ohio University students can do hands-on work tending crops, aging forests, and working the soil. They learn to be scientists in the quiet, natural beauty of the Ridges.
