June Kennedy

June Kennedy and her late husband, Bev, bought their 147 acre woodlot in the mid-1980’s. They joined the OWA soon after its inception and Bev served on the chapter board for many years. He and June hosted chapter events at their property on several occasions.

After Bev’s passing, when June decided to sell their woodlot, she assumed she could no longer be an OWA member. Fortunately, she learned that ownership was not a criteria, and she is still on our membership list.

“I miss the woods” she says “and seeing all the wildlife, but time marches on”. She adds “I don’t get out to the OWA events as much anymore but hope to again soon.” June has many good friends made through the OWA and continues to support the organization. “I like every event; there’s always something new to learn, and above all, I enjoy the fellowship”.

    Duncan and Ruth Hough are seventh generation farmers who currently grow corn, soybeans, wheat and hay.

    While past generations relied on their woodlots for firewood, fence posts, building material and some maple syrup, Duncan and Ruth also enjoy the Trilliums, Hepaticas, Trout Lilies and other forest flowers that flourish in their woods. For them, the woods are a source of pleasure and recreation as well as a means to heat their home.

    To Duncan and Ruth, OWA membership allows them to keep up to date on sustainable forest practices as well as tree diseases, invasive species and other threats to their woodlands.
