Today’s show is a continued featured series called “Women In Conservation” with this series 2nd guest Kimberly Kaufman. Kimberly Kaufman’s lifelong love of the outdoors grew into a passion for birds in the 1990s. She monitored nesting bald eagles for the Ohio Division of Wildlife and ran bluebird trails before she began banding migrant songbirds for the Black Swamp Bird Observatory. Kim’s involvement grew, becoming the observatory’s education director then executive director in 2009, a position she still holds. Kim was instrumental in starting the highly successful Ohio Young Birders Club, a group for teenagers that has served as a model for youth programs in many other states, as well as The Biggest Week In American Birding, which has rapidly become one of the largest birding festivals on the continent. She also co-authored the Kaufman Field Guide to Nature of New England. She and her husband, Kenn, live in rural Ohio with their two (indoor) cats, Kirby and Pearl.
