​​​Our Breeding Bird Survey Kickoff for 2023 is on April 13th, from 7-9p.m. on Zoom. Spend this winter getting to know the most common birds by sight and sound. Go birding whenever you can, then come to the kickoff and learn how to record your observations and hone your skills. Surveying is done two to four times during early summer in a single park, and each visit takes a few hours. Previous experience preferred.

Registration is required! Sign up here.

Check our Volunteer Stewardship Calendar for other survey kickoff and training events. ​​​
