On Saturday, Jan. 17, kids from grades 3-6 are invited to take part in a bird count at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the refuge, located at 14000 West State Route 2, north of Oak Harbor. Children must be accompanied by an adult family member, and small groups led by bird guides will follow planned routes as they seek to count every bird they see or hear. Binoculars are available and a pizza lunch will be provided. Dress for the weather -- warm boots, hats and gloves – and pre-registration at 419-898-0014 is encouraged.
