Upcoming OBCI Events:
Delaware County Bird Club: Ohio Bird Conservation
January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Our friends at the Delaware County Bird Club welcome Matt Shumar, Coordinator of the Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative (OBCI).
Following broad scale efforts to conserve bird populations across species’ full-life cycle, the Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative was established in 2004. The goal of OBCI was to step-down larger efforts (e.g., Partners in Flight, bird Joint Ventures) to the state level and act as a bridge between regional and local organizations to guide conservation efforts. For the last 15 years, OBCI has actively engaged state and federal wildlife agencies, non-profit groups, universities, museums, businesses, and private citizens to address avian conservation issues in all habitats. Matt will discuss OBCI’s programs, associated research, and how you can become involved in bird conservation.
