About

We are seeking wetland enthusiasts to monitor amphibians and/or marsh birds (prior experience not necessary), and who are willing to volunteer for about 10 hours per year surveying our Great Egret Marsh Preserve or other wetlands. You will learn a standardized protocol to monitor frogs and secretive marsh birds, the Marsh Monitoring Program, which is used across the Great Lakes.

The Ohio Wetlands Association will lead a Volunteer Training Workshop at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday March 3 rd, 2018 from 10-2 pm. Participants will be given an in-depth orientation to the program, and have the opportunity to sign up to survey a wetland route this spring. Registered volunteers will receive Handbooks, a Training CD, Data forms and more.

If you are interested in becoming a Marsh Monitor Volunteer, go to http://www.ohwetlands.org/marsh-monitoring-training.html for details and registration.

Please contact Angela Burke for more information- angela.burke@tnc.org or 614-717-2770 ext.144
