The Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas II is a joint project of The Ohio State University, School of Environment and Natural Resources and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources-Division of Wildlife. The Project Director and Principle Investigator of the Atlas is Paul Rodewald (OSU), Matthew Shumar (OSU) is a Research Associate and Project Coordinator, and Nathan Stricker (Ohio Division of Wildlife) is a Co-Investigator.
The Advisory Board for the Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas II includes Mark Shieldcastle (Black Swamp Bird Observatory), Ned Keller (Ohio Ornithological Society), Dan Brauning (Pennsylvania Game Commission), John Ritzenthaler, and John Castrale (Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife). The Ohio Ornithological Society has graciously donated hosting for the Atlas website. This large-scale effort is made possible only though the assistance of hundreds of citizen volunteers, and other in-kind contributions from conservation groups, and federal, state, and local governmental agencies in Ohio.
