Join us for an upcoming event! 

On this page, we post information about upcoming events that the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative is taking part in.

Sunday, September 26

You’re invited to attend the 2021 Deer Creek BioBlitz, a four-hour free event OPHI is co-hosting, filled with different activities for families, students, nature lovers, or anyone interested! Come on out to Deer Creek State Park next Sunday, Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and take part in a variety of activities: collecting nature with the iNaturalist app, birding, and wildlife demonstrations.

The event is a fundraiser for a restoration project at Deer Creek that OPHI is working on in partnership with Green Columbus, ODNR State Parks, the Ohio Wildlife Management Association, and the Grange Insurance Audubon Center. The effort aims to restore the area to a naturalist birding trail, and we’re looking for more supporters to help out with the project.

To get in touch or ask any questions, please contact Marci Lininger at
