"The Ohio Nature Almanac" is the first and most complete volume on the Buckeye State's natural history and outdoor recreation sites. Think of this landmark encyclopedia as your personal laptop for learning and leisure. It took 568 pages to describe 400 million years of accumulated natural wealth, and the places comprising the state's panoramic, outdoor playground. It includes guides to Ohio's 73 state parks, 65 metroparks and county parks, 19 state forests, and 117 nature preserves -- plus its nature centers, scenic rivers, national wildlife refuges, and selected state wildlife areas. Explore Ohio's lush landscape on paths meant for feet, hooves, bicycles, skis, and ATVs; discover which trails venture into an alien world in just a quarter-mile, and which one ends up where it starts 1,100 miles later. Learn which plants and animals are on the endangered species list, and those on the most wanted list. Get the lowdown on Ohio's biggest bat cave, its biggest trees, its biggest lakes, and its biggest fish. Find out how its streams got their names, where stalactites grow, where waterfalls flow, and where hunters and anglers go. Discover where earthquakes rumbled, where glaciers pawed, and where bison once roamed. The Ohio Nature Almanac reveals the best places for watching wildlife, collecting fossils, admiring views, oggling geological gems, and sniffing wildflowers. Who boated the biggest burbot, and bagged the biggest buck? It's in here, and it's indexed.
