The revolutionary Ohio Young Birders Conference provides a unique opportunity for student members to address an audience of their peers in a professional setting. In addition to the student presentations, the Annual Conference includes field trips, fabulous door prizes, catered lunch, optic raffles, and a bird quiz led by noted author Kenn Kaufman with assistance from OYBC members. This is an event for the whole family!
The Ohio EPA's Ohio Environmental Education Fund (OEEF) awarded Black Swamp Bird Observatory full funding of $35,000 for our Ohio Young Birders Club expansion. The OEEF grant fund will enable BSBO to achieve measurable objectives that support the overall goal of expanding and enhancing the OYBC, building a brighter future for bird conservation. A portion of these funds were used to achieve the goals of the 2019 Annual Ohio Young Birders Conference.
