Dave Ewert, Senior Conservation Scientist for the Great Lakes Project of The Nature Conservancy, spoke on conservation. He coordinates and initiates science-based conservation work throughout the Great Lakes area. He works on winter habitat of the Kirtland’s Warbler in The Bahamas.

The Biggest Week in American Birding is an annual event held in northwestern Ohio. Every spring many species of small birds in the warbler family migrate from South America to Canada. In order to store up energy for the flight across Lake Erie, the birds spend some time on the southwestern shore of Lake Erie.
