Apsley Receives ODNR’s Cardinal Award

Dave Apsley received the 2023 Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Cardinal Award at a special ceremony during the Ohio State Fair. As a state specialist for natural resources, Apsley has dedicated his career to seeing that Ohioans – and more specifically those in the Appalachian region – have the science-based information they need to make the best woodland management decisions possible. He has built strong relationships with other organizations and agencies across Ohio, which results in even stronger programming. Click here to read the official press release featuring Dave’s award.

We are truly humbled that Dave has chosen to serve the people of Ohio through his work with Extension – and as he approaches retirement, we reflect on how well-deserved this award is for Dave. Congratulations on the award and your retirement, Dave. We couldn’t be prouder to have you as one of our own.
