If you're a birder in the Cincinnati area, drop by the Mason Wild Bird Center the day after Thanksgiving to help raise money for the Oxbow (open 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.)--and celebrate the four-year anniversary of the store's opening! The first 100 customers will receive a free goody bag, and one of the items in it will be an art notecard from me of "Red in the Snow!" A few prints of my paintings will also be for sale along with packs of 10 note cards--all with 100% of the cost going to the Oxbow. A few prints will be given away as door prizes too (among other really cool door prizes). There will also be a raffle with over $1000.00 in prizes! The owners of the store, Mary and Patrick, are going to match dollar for dollar all funds raised during the open house, so head over and help preserve the Oxbow!
A "Red in the Snow" notecard will be one of the items in the free goody bags Mary will be handing out
to the first 100 customers at the Holiday Open House and anniversary celebration.
About the OxbowThe Oxbow is a broad floodplain where the Great Miami River empties into the Ohio near Lawrenceburg, Indiana, seventeen miles downstream from Cincinnati. It is named for a small prehistoric horseshoe, or oxbow-shaped lake, formed when flood waters cut a new course for the Great Miami River. The Oxbow is a heavily used staging area where migrating birds refuel and rebuild their energies. The area is essential to their success on long flights between distant northern breeding grounds and southern wintering areas. The Oxbow is the most important wetland area in the mid-section of the Ohio Valley, drawing the tri-state area's largest concentrations of ducks and herons.
