Purpose

The Conservation Planning and Research Committee is committed to providing scientific recommendations and expertise about bird and habitat conservation in Ohio. The committee includes scientists, professors, land managers, conservationists and concerned citizens. The Conservation Planning and Research Committee will identify research needs for the state, develop conservation planning, and promote collaborative projects through partnerships.
