In August of 2016, we posted an article about how the online game Minecraft teaches forest regeneration and helps users understand the pros and cons of various tree species. This year, we bring you information about Pokemon GO a game designed for your smartphone. While the premise of the game is to find cute creatures to befriend and train for battle, this game ultimately teaches additional lessons about nature and conservation.

Although the benefits of mulching garden plants are many, wood mulch that has been improperly stockpiled can lead to plant injury or even death. Young herbaceous plants are the most susceptible to such injury, which becomes obvious shortly after applying a hardwood bark mulch.
Many indoor plants can be moved to shady locations outdoors but only after danger of frost is past. Plants will dry out more often outdoors, so keep a close eye on soil moisture. Sinking the pots in soil will help slow down moisture loss.
Purdue Extension is offering a three-day workshop for both new and experienced leaders, administrators, facilitators and graduate students who would like to develop or improve their facilitation skills. It will take place at the Canyon Inn at McCormick's Creek State Park, a scenic retreat location in southern Indiana, on June 26-28.
The Entomologist statue in front of the Agricultural Administration building at Purdue
Around the world, statues of people are commonplace. Such renderings often depict famous people. Politicians, including U.S. presidents, governors, and legislators are frequently immortalized in this way. So are kings, queens, military heroes, famous athletes and show biz personalities. Statues that depict entomologists are rare, but a few do exist.
Our oak-hickory forests provide us with many environmental, social and economic benefits. Without proper stewardship, these benefits and services can be reduced. Professional foresters have an innovative set of management options for the maintenance of healthy forest ecosystems.
