Detailed Planting Ad.jpg

Help MAD Scientist Associates and the City of Powell plant the newly enhanced wetland area at Seldom Seen Park! We have thousands of native wetland plugs and bare root shrubs to install, so any extra hands will be appreciated.

The park will be muddy, so wear boots if you have them. We'll provide gloves, tools, and refreshments. Park along the service drive that parallels the railroad (see link below).

If construction is delayed due to weather this week, we will reschedule this event for the following week.

Email Jenny (jennya@madscientistassociates) if you have any questions. Activities are family friendly. Come anytime between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.

Earth Day Columbus 2018

  • 4877 Central College Road Westerville, OH, 43081 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Want to get back to nature and celebrate Earth Day?  Join MAD Scientist Associates in supporting the City of Columbus.  They will be creating a park on Central College Rd., featuring a nature preserve and natural play area. During this event, we will be planting trees to expand the mature forest already located onsite, increasing wildlife habitat and providing additional benefits for stormwater, air quality, and property values.

Come prepared for muddy conditions! Shovels will be provided, but they may be in short supply--we encourage volunteers to bring their own. Water and snacks will also be provided.

Park in the parking lot of Quest Community Church (4877 Central College Rd.). The tree planting will take place on the property to the west (signs will be posted to direct to site).

Make a Difference Day at Boyer Nature Preserve 2016

On Saturday, October 22, MAD Scientist Associates will be working with the City of Westerville Parks & Recreation Dept. and FACT to host the annual Make a Difference Day event at Boyer Nature Preserve in Westerville, Ohio.  We'll be continuing the battle against invasive species in the Preserve, mainly targeting bush honeysuckle.  Planting native trees and shrubs in the place of the non-native plants we remove will be our focus. 

This is a family-friendly and group-friendly event, so bring yourselves and everyone you know! There's lots to do.

The event will run from 9:00-12:30. You'll have plenty of time to nap before the OSU game at 8:00pm!

Boyer Nature Preserve is located at:  452 E Park St., Westerville, OH 43081
