‘Masked Birders’ raise funds for wildlife refuge 

OAK HARBOR –  The Two Masked Birders are the stuff that superheroes are built of. To aid Ottawa Countrywide Wildlife Refuge and understanding the seriousness of COVID-19’s influence on community safety and health and fitness, Pals of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge customers Sherry and Peggy (both equally of Wooster) made the decision to sew “Nature Series” masks and donate a “COVID-19 Lifestyle Saver” raffle basket to the Pals team.

They dubbed on their own “The Two Masked Birders”. The ladies both equally retired from Ohio Point out University’s Wooster Campus — the Ohio Agricultural Investigation and Enhancement Center in Wooster, OH, wherever Sherry managed the Honey Bee Lab and Peggy done Coronavirus investigation.

Quite a few of the materials made use of in stitching the masks aspect bees from Sherry’s fondness for bees in her quite a few Honey Bee Lab assignments. The COVID-19 Lifetime Saver raffle basket has previously aided to raise $1,115 for conservation endeavours at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. An on the internet auction showcasing masks designed by The Two Masked Birders will operate by way of midday Saturday.
