Dick Tuttle

All of us at Columbus Audubon are saddened to learn of the passing of Richard (Dick) Tuttle. Dick was a conservation hero in central Ohio, responsible for the construction, placement, and maintenance of hundreds of nest boxes for Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, and Prothonotary Warblers as well as nesting platforms and boxes for American Kestrels and Ospreys. He also was an educator, both for the general public and for those he inspired to engage in their own active conservation projects.

We invite you to learn more about Dick’s conservation work by looking through the Conservation Articles and News on this website. There you’ll see article after article that he authored to document the results of his efforts, articles and records that help us to record conservation progress.
