This weekend is The Great Backyard Bird Count when bird watchers of all ages are counting birds. They are creating a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate and it takes as little as 15 minutes on one day…It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
Tonight’s the time in downtown Dayton for their First Friday events. Galleries, restaurants and shops will host a variety of free events, including art exhibit openings and live music. And as you wander around you will be hearing Rev Cool from right here on WYSO because many of the places have tuned in 91.3.
The Kings Island amusement and waterpark outside Cincinnati says it plans to hire 4,000 workers to fill seasonal positions. The park says it is accepting applications online for the 2012 season that starts April 28.
Open positions are in various areas, including admissions, entertainment, food and beverage, lifeguards, rides and security.
Applications are open to those 15 and older. The park is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.
