AEP ReCreation Land - Southeast, Ohio



August 2011 - Abigail and Karin, backpacking in the AEP Recreation Land in Southeast, Ohio. What was formally coal mining land is now 30,000 acres of reclaimed, revitalized, recreation land. The possibilities are endless: camping, biking, fishing, backpacking and hiking.

August 2011 -  Great Blue Lobelia, Golden Rod, Iron Weed, Sunflowers and Joe- Pye Weed were but a few of the wildflowers identifed during their two day trip.

The effort put forth into repairing this land has obviously paid off; not only is there an increased number of native plants, pollinator and as Gina pointed out... Map turtles.
