The Black Swamp Bird Observatory considers its banding program a “feather in its cap.”

The program, led by research director Mark Shieldcastle, has banded more than 500,000 birds over two decades. The BSBO banding station is the largest in the country, according to Kim Kaufman, executive director of the BSBO.

“We band more birds than any other station in the country on a regular basis,” Kaufman said. “That's a feather in our cap, but what it really represents is how important that (Magee) marsh is to migratory birds.”

 
China exchange may facilitate global education

For Oregon City Schools Superintendent Mike Zalar, a trip to China last April resulted in more than just great memories of the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. The trip may open doors to a more global and international way of teaching and learning.

Zalar, along with eight other superintendents from across Ohio, spent a little over two weeks participating in the China Exchange Initiative. The trips were funded by the Freeman Foundation, a program that facilitates educational exchange programs between schools in many states and provinces in the United States and China at the pre-college level.

The program is also sponsored in coordination with the Ohio Department of Education, the Buckeye Association of School Administrators, and the Chinese Ministry of Education.
