The OYBC Conference in Columbus, Ohio had amazing young speakers this year! We thought they were so good – we would write about each one of them separately!
OYBC Central Takes Flight with Service Learning
Doug is a member of the Youth Advisory Panel of the Central Ohio chapter of the Ohio Young Birders Club.
We first met Doug at the Shreve Migration Sensation in Shreve, Ohio and have since seen him at Magee Marsh and the Midwest Birding Symposium in Lakeside, Ohio. He is a great birder and a lot of fun!
Doug is not only an intelligent, enthusiastic birder but also a charismatic speaker. His presentation led us through three service projects the Central chapter has worked on this year. They put up new bird feeders at an elementary school which now is part of school’s science curriculum. They also put up swallow/bluebird boxes at Glacier Ridge Metro Park (with successful results) and have built and soon will be erecting an Osprey platform along the Scioto River.
His talk was funny and informative and a great way to kick off the speaking portion of the conference. Doug was also the Master of Ceremony and did a fabulous job!
