95 percent of ancient Ohio was forested. But centuries ago there were also small regions of prairie. Tall grasses and wildflowers were part of the prairie ecology and so were bison. Researchers near Columbus are trying to reestablish a prairie / bison ecosystem.
Portman To Deliver Eulogy For Armstrong
A funeral service for astronaut and Ohio native Neil Armstrong has been scheduled for Friday, with U.S. Senator Rob Portman set to deliver the eulogy.
Portman describes Armstrong as a good friend and advisor. Few details on the private Friday ceremony have been released. A spokesman for the Armstrong family says a public memorial service is a possibility.
Armstrong died Saturday, days after undergoing heart bypass surgery.
