Some farmland in Pickaway County, Ohio will now become a preserve due to efforts by the Appalachia Ohio Alliance, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Even before the land was farmed, beginning in the 1800s, the Adena people lived on the land and left behind ancient burial mounds. Also found on the land are various species of plants that are non-native to Ohio.

The Appalachia Ohio Alliance works to raise money to conserve lands in Pickaway County as well as in Franklin, Hocking and Ross counties.

From The Columbus Dispatch:

“With the help of several local and state groups, including the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the alliance plans to protect resources and restore the habitat of native plants and animals that likely existed there before the property was farmed.”
