Wildlife watchers and enthusiasts are invited to attend a ceremony celebrating International Migratory Bird Day and the completion of the boardwalk renovation project at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
The Friends of Magee Marsh Association, in cooperation with the ODNR Division of Wildlife, recently completed renovations to the 25-year-old Magee Marsh boardwalk, after conducting a campaign to raise more than $300,000 for the project. Renovations, including replacing decking and rails, stabilizing the observation tower, and other improvements occurred over a three-year period. “The Division of Wildlife is very appreciative of the Friends of Magee Marsh for taking on this project and ensuring the use of the boardwalk for future wildlife enthusiasts to enjoy,” says Scott Butterworth, Wildlife District Two Manager.
