Camp Perry

The Ohio Air National Guard plans to build a wind turbine to generate energy for a camp near Lake Erie, but groups involved with protecting birds want to stop that plan.

Operated by the National Guard, Camp Perry sits on the shore of Lake Erie in Port Clinton.  And the proposed wind turbine would be about 10 miles from the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, home to many migrating birds. It’s also the host for an event called “Biggest Week in American Birding”.

Michael Hutchins of the American Bird Conservancy says that’s a problem.
