Great Lakers Chapter and Ohio River Valley Chapter

Maumee Bay State Park and Campground

This rally jointly sponsored by the Great Lakers and Ohio River Valley chapters will follow 10 days of the “best birding ever” festival at Magee Marsh. We will piggyback on this serious birding event with some birding and a variety of cultural/recreational activities.

Magee Marsh, situated on the southern shores of Lake Erie, is a prime stopover for the North American warblers during the spring migration. Every year thousands of birders, photographers, and nature lovers flock to this location in spring to witness the unforgettable spectacle of the large songbird concentration preparing to migrate across the great lake toward their breeding grounds in the north. Many birders make the trip annually. Some have been doing so for more than twenty-five years. For more information, visit mageemarsh.org.

We will also take some time in Toledo to visit the James Schoonmaker Museum Ship and Tony Pack’s restaurant made famous by the TV show M*A*S*H. Enjoy lunch while checking out the celebrity-signed hot dog buns displayed on café walls. In addition to the world-famous hot dog, other Hungarian specialties include chicken paprika, stuffed cabbage, apple strudel and dumplings and fried green pickles.

Other places of interest are the National Museum of the Great Lakes, the Glass Pavilion, and the Libby Glass Factory outlet.

Our tentative agenda will include a meet and greet Thursday (bring an appetizer to share). We will have a potluck dinner Friday night with hamburgers/veggie burgers provided by the rally.
