8th Annual Ohio Young Birders Conference
We would like to thank the volunteers, the sponsors, the staff at The Wilderness Center, all of our student presenters, the OYBC Chapter Advisers, The Wilderness Center Bird Club,and everyone who attended for the 8th Annual Ohio Young Birders Conference yesterday.
The event was everything we hoped it would be, and so much more! We sold out the event with nearly 150 people in attendance, the student presentations exceeded all expectations, and it was a tremendous honor to present Darlene Sillick with the 2014 Ohio Young Birders Club Conservation Mentor Award. Darlene has mentored and inspired hundreds of people, and her conservation efforts have had a significant impact on the population of some of Ohio's most important cavity nesting bird species.
In a world where we are constantly bombarded with bad news, it does the heart good to spend a day filled with hope and joy!
