OARDC, CFAES’s research arm, welcomes the Ohio Bluebird Society’s Annual Education Conference Feb. 23. Attendance is free if you preregister, $5 at the door. Details and registration form (with PayPal option) here (pdf). Among the speakers: Greg Miller, “one of the guys from ‘The Big Year’ (book and movie),” and Jason Martin of Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology (video, 5:08). Bluebirds and other birds, by eating weed seeds and crop pests, help sustain farms, forests, gardens, and home landscapes.
