    The station, which is run by The Ohio State University, does research on growing grapes, especially grapes used to make wine. It’s at 2625 South Ridge East in Kingsville, about 65 miles east of Cleveland.

    QGIS is a free and open-source geographic information system, or GIS. It works on operating systems including Mac OS X, Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows.

    The workshop is for anyone who studies or works with natural resources, including forests, farmland, watersheds and wildlife, said Kathy Smith, coordinator of the event’s sponsor, the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program.
