The Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters 2021 Fall Gathering, held on Saturday, October 16, was attended by 22+ chapters leaders from across Ohio. Even though we once again were virtual we had another successful meeting. Our speakers provided helpful information and inspirational themes for chapters, including reports of successful programs from organizing multiple projects, recruiting younger board members, and launching an innovative Native Plant Back Yard Challenge program.We had fun, too!
COAC thanks all of our speakers, including Darlene Sillick from Columbus Audubon, Zak Beaver (eagle Scout), Izabela Grobelna and Adam Forrer of Audubon Great Lakes, Kenn Kaufman, Jim Palus, Allison Boehler, Kori Gasaway, and Kate MacFarland, all from Columbus Audubon, and Allison Clark and Leigh Ann Miller of the Grange Insurance Audubon Center. We also thank the Gathering organizers, Mark Demyan of the Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland and Bill Heck of Columbus Audubon. But our greatest thanks go to all those who attended! We hope that you enjoyed the conference.
