Black Oystercatcher Workshop
- Black Oystercatcher Workshop
On behalf of MCAS, Audubon CA, & California State Parks, you are cordially invited to attend an enthusiastic and informative workshop on the Black Oystercatcher!
More than twenty Mendocino outdoor enthusiasts banded together last spring, as citizen scientists, to conduct weekly population surveys along the favorite rocky habitat of this shorebird. Anna Weinstein, of Audubon California, and Joleen Ossello of MCAS will share the results of the initial breeding success survey along the California coastline in 2012.
Whether you're fascinated by this bird's quirky behavior, enjoy learning or being outdoors; join us for breakfast, tea, and shorebird conservation. Learn how to detect and track the breeding behavior of this ever present, year round resident. This workshop provides survey training, a short field trip, public outreach tools, and the opportunity to join a survey.
When: Monday, April 29th 9am - 2pm
Where: Russian Gulch State Park Recreation Hall
Provided: Light breakfast fare and beverages
Bring: Binoculars and/or scope, appropriate dress for weather, and sack lunch
Please RSVP by 4/25 to: Joleen Ossello, 707-962-0142, j_ossello@...
