This year’s conservation highlight is titled, Safe Passage: Lights Out for Migrating Birds (and Bats!)

In this program, Tim Jasinski, Wildlife Rehabilitation Coordinator at the Lake Erie Science and Nature Center will discuss the Ohio Lights Out citizen science initiative and what you can do to help migrating birds and bats.
