Ohio Young Birders Club – Sitting for Conservation

The upcoming Big Sit benefits kids and conservationAllison with Bins

The Ohio Young Birders Club is agian gearing up to sit all day for conservation – this time in Port Clinton, Ohio. Last year, they raised $3,400 for habitat conservation on Middle Bass Island. This year’s big sit is October 16th and proceeds will go to help the City of Port Clinton with habitat restoration at the Port Clinton Lakefront Preserve.

The location of the Big Sit is the same property of the June BioBlitz so this will help their efforts to study and document the area. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come.

One of the most recent public acquisitions along Ohio’s coast, the Port Clinton Lakefront Preserve connects two existing parks to create a nearly one mile stretch of Lake Erie access.

In November 2009 the city of Port Clinton finalized the purchase of the preserve, which includes 12 acres of coastal wetlands, marsh and a one-third mile sand beach. – Ohio DNR Website
