For those who may not have experienced the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge near Sandusky, Ohio, we strongly recommend that you try a weekend when the "auto tour" is authorized. Approximately one weekend per month, this sanctuary's seven miles of trails are open to travel by car. Bring along your longest lenses, tripod, and gimbal head. You will see shore birds, ducks, and hawks of all kinds. Several club members are planning a trip there in March or April. Be sure to mention your interest at an upcoming club meeting. Here are ONWR auto tour dates for the next several months.
