Citizen Scientist: Breeding Bird Survey
Please visit the new page to apply.
Citizen scientists work together as teams during late spring and very early summer to gather data on the breeding bird population at George Washington Carver National Monument. Following data collection protocol, volunteers will use a handheld GPS unit to travel to designated plot points to document birds present in each area. All equipment and field data sheets will be provided. Data collected adds to information over the past decade, building an inventory of how the bird population has changed over time.
