On the first Sunday of each month at 8 a.m. volunteers meet at the trail head parking lot for the bird count. Volunteers divide into teams and hike the east half of the refuge. Everyone, of all skill levels, is welcome. Bring binoculars and dress to be outdoors. This is a great way to see the refuge, meet great people, and practice your bird id skills. After lunch at a local eatery volunteers gather again to drive the west half of the refuge. For more information about this part of the bird count please call the refuge at 419-898-0014.
