Magee Marsh Wildlife Area was recently voted the Best Birding Destination by the readers of USA Today; it is also known as the “warbler capital of the world.” Those enjoying various kinds of wildlife, beautiful scenery and helping people of all ages, are invited to volunteer at the Migratory Bird Center in the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. The Friends of Magee Marsh need volunteers to help with projects they sponsor throughout the year.
A volunteer may be asked to help with: answering visitor’s questions, assisting in the gift shop, giving out information, ex. maps, about the area, helping with the boardwalk restoration project, pulling garlic mustard and Lake Erie beach clean-up.
The Magee Marsh Wildlife Area and Sportsman’s Migratory Bird Center are 17 miles west of Port Clinton, located at 13229 W. State Rt. 2 between SR 19 and 590.
Volunteers are needed March through November and are asked to work a minimum of one six-hour day a month, but most work longer, especially during the wildlife area’s busy month in May.
