The Black Swamp Bird Observatory is among the organizations and agencies to be lauded by the Ohio Senate for their role in promoting bird habitat, research, and conservation.

A resolution approved by the Senate designates May 10 as Bird Ohio Day to recognize the importance of bird and bird habitat stewardship.

“Bird watching has become one of the most popular and economically significant forms of outdoor recreation in Ohio and throughout the United States,” a resolution passed last month by the senate says. “Birding tourism contributes significantly to economic development in northwest Ohio. Thousands of birdwatchers from across the country and around the world visit Northwest Ohio and the southwest shore of Lake Erie each spring to witness the spectacle of bird migration and to participate in the Biggest Week in American Birding Festival organized by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory of Oak Harbor.”

Schools have released balloons during elementary science classes and many people release them in remembrance of a loved one. But, what happens to those balloons once the helium runs out?

Students Against Balloon Releases, a partnership between Black Swamp Bird Observatory and Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools is hoping to educate students about the dangers and wastefulness of mass balloon releases and other forms of litter.

Tiffanie Hayes, BSBO Conservation Outreach Specialist, said she too remembers releasing balloons in science class. As she got older, she realized just how dangerous the practice was.
