Why the Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) Matters by Dan Best, Geauga Park District and Kirtland Bird Club
Now more than ever, it is imperative Ohio conservation interests connect, communicate, and collaborate as a united front for nature and the environment.
Squinting under a blazing sun and stiffened by cold air, 25 brave birders from Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society and Kirtland Bird Club teamed up at LaDue Reservoir in Geauga County for a joint field trip on Sunday, March 25, 2018.
Bird Migration Knows No Boundaries with Imad Al Atrash, Executive Director, Palestine Wildlife Society and Lukas Padegimas, Kirtland Bird Club
After 1992, I was following my people in my generation who were hunting birds. Because of my conservation background, in my mind and my heart, I had to protect my nature. I started to stop them. At that time I shifted from flora to becoming an ornithologist. I became, in 2010, in Brazil, a global ornithologist. ~ Imad Al Atrash
