Ohio Nature Education is a private non-profit volunteer organization which provides a home for over fifty wild animals that can no longer live in the wild. We incorporate these animals into environmental education programs for all ages.
Ohio Nature Education is looking for part-time and full-time interns. These internships are designed to encourage individual growth in the fields of environmental education and interpretation, natural history and give a view of the non-profit... sector. Individuals will learn to develop skills in caring for captive wildlife, conducting programs for all ages, staffing displays and hands-on work with animals. These positions are unpaid and available for three and six-month commitments. College credit can be earned by completing the appropriate paperwork through the applicant’s educational institution. Resumes can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

The store bought nectar is junk!! It causes a slow death.
It's filled with chemicals, dyes, preservatives and petroleum based.
The only store bought nectar SAFE for Hummingbirds is #EZNectar.
At EZNectar, they actually care for the birds, unlike the other companies who only care about lining their pockets.
I used the red stuff 3 to 4 years ago. The minute I found out how deadly it is to hummingbirds, I changed out the nectar immediately!! I Made my own with sugar water only.
Sugar water is all they need. 4 to 1 ratio .
Example... 4 cups water to 1 cup pure cane granulated sugar. No dyes needed.
No. You do NOT boil the mixture. You boil water (if you must boil) Then, you measure out 4 cups water, add your 1 cup of sugar, stir, then.... let cool and fill a clean feeder!
I've had up to 25 to 30 on my back porch last year and the year before.
*ABOUT RED DYES/THE DANGERS OF!
Here is more on this unfortunate situation.
Hard to know what to believe in these times. Sad!
So sad! Another non-profit founder pushed out of his own organization just to have it be disbanded! What a shame.
It is with great disappointment we announce that the Organization for Bat Conservation will be closing its doors. This decision was made by our all-volunteer Bo...ard of Directors that oversees the organization after careful consideration of all practicable options to continue operations.
Our animal ambassadors, staff, volunteers and friends have helped us inspire an appreciation for bats among countless people. We treasure all of your hard work, your dedication to our organization, and the love you've shown to the animals and to our mission. The animals continue to be our utmost priority and we will make sure they have happy, healthy new homes. We are working diligently with experts in the field to select the new homes that are best equipped to care for the animals and to transfer the animals safely.
We are also making sure that our educational mission lives on through other organizations.
**Please continue watching our social media channels in the days and weeks to come, as more news about the animals and the continuation of our mission will be available soon.**
Thank you all for your support in the past and in this difficult time.

We take our job to educate seriously. Therefore we encourage you to view proposed hunting regulations presented to the Ohio Wildlife Council. It's not only about deer but includes a proposal to allow bobcat trapping in Ohio. Information including how to have your voice heard on the proposed regulations at Open House events are listed below. http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/…/ohio-wildlife-council-receive…
Another example of non-lethal methods of dealing with nuisance situations.
A special note to the couple who was asking about kestrels today at our program. Please see this link http://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/american-kestrel

Today Ohio Nature Education had a program at Oakland Park Nursery, Birding by Ear. This fun program teaches how to identify birds by song. Also a few of our birds made an appearance. Hibou the great horned owl, Oz the barred owl, Otis the screech owl and Teddy the red tailed hawk.
