ODNR seeking donations through Ohio income tax checkoff program PDF Print E-mail

When filling out their taxes this year, Ohioans can make a difference in preserving the state's wealth of natural resources for generations to come by making a donation through Ohio's Income Tax Checkoff Program.
Old-growth woods, bogs and fens, endangered species, prairies and other remnants of Ohio's natural history are all protected by a system of 136 state nature preserves. Ohioans who donate to the Natural Areas State Income Tax Checkoff Program help support this system.
Checkoff donations have enabled the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Natural Areas and Preserves to construct trails and boardwalks, improve parking and signage and allow for greater public access to a treasure trove of nature's wonders available in Ohio. Additionally, donations support critical ecological management activities, including efforts to remove non-native and invasive species that pose a serious and ever-growing threat to sensitive habitats.
Last year, staff intensified efforts to treat and control non-native invasive species impacting northwestern state nature preserves, including Irwin Prairie, Goll Woods, Sheldon's Marsh and Lakeside Daisy. A combination of staff labor, supplies and equipment supported by checkoff donations and volunteer labor resulted in nearly 200 acres in northwestern Ohio being treated to stop the spread of 16 non-natives, such as glossy buckthorn, reed canary grass, Phragmites, bush honeysuckle, garlic mustard, autumn olive and purple loosestrife.

4-H Camp Palmer pool funds

FAYETTE - More than 250,000 youth from Northwest Ohio have enjoyed the pool at 4-H Camp Palmer since 1957.  The Wood County 4-H Camp is annually the largest group to use the camp.
The camp is now accepting continuing donations to support the replacement of the camp's aging pool. Currently about 40 percent of funds ($200,000 raised thanks to many generous donors of the estimated $495,000 needed) has been raised with an anticipated new pool in place by summer of 2015. The demand and use of 4-H Camp Palmer has grown steadily since 1947.
