Why Donate Now

AOA is seeking to raise $20,000 to help us acquire and restore the Utzinger Family Farm and Bog, located on State Route 104. This unique glacial kettle will be the only conserved bog in Franklin County. It is part of our Scioto River Flyway Corridor Initiative, helping to conserve critical habitat for migratory and nesting birds in Ohio.
