Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Coordinator Dave McPheron accepts the state award for the Outstanding MGV Invasive Species Project-medium division at the State Master Gardener Volunteer Conference.
The Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers brought back two state awards from the Ohio MGV Conference held last month at The Ohio State University in Columbus.
‘Invasive Species Media Series’ was recognized as state winner for the Invasive Species Outstanding MGV Project award category for medium sized groups at this annual conference.
Also, the Hardin County group was recognized as a platinum ‘Standards of Excellence’ award winner. This is the highest degree of accomplishment for a county Master Gardener Volunteer program, based on guidelines set up by the Ohio State University Extension.
