What is the ODCMG?
The Outdoor Discovery Center Macatawa Greenway (ODCMG) is a non-profit, outdoor education organization. To learn more about our organization, go to the "About Us" page.
More than 150 species of birds, 10 species of reptiles, 8 species of amphibians, 10 species of dragon and damselflies, 10 species of mammals, and 6 species of fish have been documented on site. These observations were made by our staff, students, researchers and visitors to the site since the year 2000. Some animals were identified during population studies of small mammals using live traps while some bird species were identified during mist-netting and bird banding.
If you would like to contribute to the growing set of data that can be found about birds on the nature preserve, go to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird site and record your observations.
