Fun for all ages

This program encourages community involvement and invites volunteers of all ages and skill levels to spend a one to two hours each week monitoring wildlife in a natural area in their neighborhood. Neighbors can conduct monitoring session in groups and may benefit from the appreciation for the larger community of the natural world that this experience offers. Volunteers often witness the entire lifecycle of a bird, from nest-building, to egg-laying, to fledgling.
