Birding

We love to travel to find new birds and participate in a lot of bird counts. We also created a Guide to Birding Field Guides and host a collection of over 200 birding links from all over the globe.

Conservation

While our main focus continues to be birds, we promote other areas of conservation as well. Conserving land not only benefits wildlife, but is hugely beneficial to people as well.

Year of the Young Birder

2013 is officially The Year of the Young Birder! We plan on spending the whole year promoting young birder clubs and sharing ideas on how to help student naturalists become lifelong conservationists.

13th Annual Shreve Migration Sensation

Coming up next week on March 16th is the annual Shreve Migration Sensation!

Shreve is where Ohio’s largest inland natural wetland complex exists (5,671 acres) making this the perfect place to host a spring migration sensation!

The 13th Annual Shreve Migration Sensation includes workshops, vendors, live birds, hands on events and even some snakes! We have attended the past three years and each time have had a wonderful experience!

So…what’s going on this year?

Some great workshops are planned which are all included for the low price of a 10 dollar admission and only 15 dollars for a family.

Here is a list of all six workshops

  1. Cute Chicks (Young Birds) by Chuck Jakubchak, Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist
  2. Not the Last of the Mohicans! By Cheryl Harner (on the Mohican Park and Malabar Farm State Park before and today)
  3. Birds, Bugs & Botany: A Photographic Foray by Judy Semrock
  4. Wood-Warblers: Gems of the Forest by Jim McCormac
  5. Go Birding: It’s good for you! By Kimberly Kaufman
  6. The Magic of Bird Flight by Kenn Kaufman

There will be fun activities for children as well. Hands-on programs, a dip-net program (bring boots), information on snakes from The Wilderness Center, and live animals from the Akron Zoo.

This event is completely worth a day out and in addition to all the wonderful events, the birding area is great! Killbuck Marsh, Shreve Lake, Brown’s Bog and Funk Bottoms wildlife area…when you get there the registration desk has a great map of where to go and bird throughout the day.
