St. Marys River/Grand Lake St. Marys was designated an Important Bird Area (IBA) in dedication ceremonies Wednesday by the Tri-Moraine Audubon Society. There are 66 such areas in Ohio. An IBA is one where there are numerous birds in rare or unique habitats. At right is Carol Bertrand, president of the Tri-Moraine Audubon Society, and Gary Steinbrunner of Fort Recovery, outreach specialist for the Ohio Audubon Society.
