This weekend Kim and I will be at the statewide Audubon Assembly down in Bellville, but for those who are coming up to the marsh region of northwest Ohio instead, here are a couple of scheduling notes. At this time of year, the road back to the boardwalk at Magee Marsh is closed on weekdays and on Saturday mornings, open on Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday. (The walking trail behind the BSBO center and the trails at the Sportsmen's Migratory Bird Center are open throughout this season.) Also, since this is the third weekend of the month, ordinarily the auto tour at Ottawa NWR would be open on Saturday, but this weekend it will be open on Sunday instead, along with an open house at the refuge visitors' center. This is a great time of year to be visiting, but the change in schedule at Ottawa and the timing of the closing at Magee are things you'll have to take into account.
