Free Bird Survey Training, Sept. 22nd from 9am to 1pm at the Botanical Gardens
- The Mendocino Land Trust's Big River Stewards program and the
Mendocino Coast chapter of the Audubon Society are pleased to
announce a free Bird Survey Training on Saturday, September 22nd from
9am to 1pm at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens Community Room.
This free workshop will focus on identifying birds by sight and sound
and will be lead by veteran birder and educator David Jensen of the
Mendocino Coast Audubon Society.
The goal of the workshop is to prepare volunteers for the annual Fall
Big River Bird Surveys during which volunteers survey for the bird
species present at 30 point-count stations throughout the new park.
This year, we'll also survey twice another 10 stations along the
mainstem of Big River on the Conservation Fund property upstream from
the new parklands.
To attend the workshop, or participate in the bird surveys, please
RSVP to Big River Stewards coordinator Matt Coleman at 962-0470 or by
