Kick off the Columbus Audubon program season on Tuesday, September 25 with this special program panel focused on the Ohio Lights Out conservation initiative.
Artificial lighting, which is becoming increasingly abundant on the landscape, may kill as many as 900 million birds every year! The Ohio Bird Conservation (OBCI) and its network of conservation organizations has developed a Lights Out! program to help to address light and glass issues in urban areas. Our panel of speakers, including Cleveland Museum of Natural History interns Moira Meehan and Stephanie Secic, Ohio State University Ornithology Club Co-President Kandace Glanville, and OBCI Program Coordinator Matt Shumar, will update us on progress — and how you can help.
6:30 – 7:00 pm: Bird quiz and social time with light refreshments. Come and meet old friends … or make new ones.
7:00 – 7:30 pm: Conservation Spotlight and announcements.
7:30 – 9:00 pm: Main program, door prizes
This Columbus Audubon program is free and open to the public. Programs are held at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, 505 West Whittier Street in the Scioto-Audubon Metro Park on the Whittier Peninsula.
