Ben Gelber, meterologist for our local NBC affiliate, recently interviewed my friend Frank about the future Big Run Preserve in Delaware County. I haven't been there, but from Frank's interview, it looks like it is a spectacular area. I've always wondered if any of the ravines of the Olentangy between Columbus and the city of Delaware had red-backed salamanders- and now I know. I commend Ben Gelber for spotlighting central Ohio's natural history. You may remember his piece from 2009 on Gypsy Moths at Highbanks Metropark that featured yours truly.
