Introduction

 

The records of the Oak Harbor Conservation Club, Inc. are donated  to the Hayes Presidential Center on an annual basis.

Agency History

 

The Oak Harbor Conservation Club was formed July 11, 1946 with the purpose to promote  hunting and fishing, encourage the appreciation of outdoor activities, support land and water conservation methods, and foster a cooperative relationship between hunters and farmers. The club was incorporated August 18, 1948.

 

The club has occasionally purchased nearby tracts of land to better provide adequate hunting and fishing opportunities for the members.  Members have also built dikes along creeks, erected nesting structures for birds, planted trees, and set up rifle ranges.

 

The club supports local conservation efforts through annual contributions to the Ottawa County Soil & Water Conservation office and offers a scholarship to college and graduate students in the field of Natural Resources-Conservation.  The members provide educational opportunities to area youth by giving away fishing rods, conducting safe hunting programs, and teaching responsible shooting techniques at the organization=s rifle range.

 

Scope and Content

 


The bulk of this collection is made up of a complete set of minutes of the regular meetings and trustee meetings from the club=s formation to the present day.  These minutes provide details of the many different activities conducted by the club including fishing derbies, trap shoots, educational programs (for both the members and the community), and work projects.  Other items found in this collection include newspaper clippings, photographs, treasurer=s reports, tax returns, and the organization=s constitution and by-laws.
