New 2021 Virtual Program Options
The Ohio Bird Sanctuary is still offering all its normal programming options such as field trips, tours, and live raptor presentations. We are taking extra precautions due to COVID-19. For more information on these programs, click the "Education Programs" tab to view your options. You can also call the Sanctuary at 419-884-4295 to speak with a staff member.
In addition to our normal programming, we have developed some new program options to fit the needs of schools, organizations, and families that are not able to meet in person or are unable to visit the Sanctuary. These options have been listed below.
Live Interaction Through Video Meeting Platform (i.e. Zoom, Google Meet, etc.)
Video Tours – Meet many of the Ohio Bird Sanctuary’s resident birds through a Video Tour! An OBS Staff member will travel around to each enclosure briefly telling you about the different species that live here.

Video Bird Encounter – Meet two birds of prey up-close through video! An OBS Staff member will provide detailed information about the species you are meeting and give you the opportunity to ask questions.

Prerecorded Video Options
We would prefer to interact with your students, families, and organizations live through a video meeting platform, but if that is not an option for you, we can create a prerecorded video for your group.
Feathered Friends Video – A 10-minute video meeting some of our education animals. This video is perfect for preschool, multi-handicapped classes, and assisted living groups. Videos can be personalized for your group. You get to choose which animals you would like in the video.
