Where can you learn about wildlife found in Ohio, in a format that’s family-friendly? Ohio Wildlife: A Coloring Field Guide offers information about fish, amphibian, reptile, bird and mammal species found in the state, in an inviting coloring book format with projects, activities and species information for the whole family to enjoy.

Black Swamp Conservancy, who helped create the guide, will introduce it at a family event May 11, in the Rotary Pavilion at Side Cut Metropark, Maumee, Ohio.

With funding from the Reed Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation and the Seed-to-the-Sower Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation, the Conservancy has 1,000 copies of Ohio Wildlife: A Coloring Field Guide to distribute for free to area families.

The guide will be introduced May 11 with a 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. event in the Rotary Pavilion of Side Cut Metropark. Author Amalia Celeste Fernand will be there to lead family activities inside the Pavilion and around the park. Free copies of the guide will be available to local children.

In addition, copies of Ohio Wildlife: A Coloring Field Guide will be distributed at the Oak Openings Region Family Day of Blue Week, Secor Metropark, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on May 19.

Once the free copies have been distributed, the guide will be available for purchase from the Conservancy. For more information about the guide, visit or call 419-833-1025.
