Flock like the birds to Northwest Ohio and experience some of the best birding North America has to offer! Spring migration at “The Warbler Capital of the World” offers amazing opportunities to sing with the songbirds and waddle with the waterfowl. Along Lake Erie’s southern edge, shorebirds, wading birds, and year round residents await the annual return of world class birders and famous faces. Woods and wetlands at Ottawa NWR provide rest and replenishment for birds, and a place for people to soar toward a “Big Year” or search for an elusive species. Join the excitement, facilitate the fun, and hone your interpretive skills while participating in this bird conservation occasion! Ottawa NWR visitor services division is seeking individuals enthused and inspired by birds to assist with the operations of the Refuge’s visitor services program during peak spring visitation. • Conducts a variety of formal and informal public programs to a variety of audiences; including orientation and interpretive talks, conducted walks and guided hikes, guided bus tours and roving interpretation. • Assists with visitor center operations; including greeting visitors, staffing the visitor center desk and sales area, responding to visitor inquiries for information, direction, and/or guidance, and educating visitors regarding rules, regulations, and safety concerns.
