3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust for a workshop to develop your birdwatching skills to support The Maine Bird Atlas, an effort to survey and map the distribution and abundance of breeding and wintering birds in Maine. It is a project of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, in partnership with the Maine Natural History Observatory, Maine Audubon, the Biodiversity Research Institute, and the public. The project will run from 2018-2022 and will enable conservationists and researchers to assess changes in the distribution of birds species and populations around the state.
This workshop will teach the importance of understanding bird populations, while giving participants the tools to claim a site, add their site to the Maine Bird Atlas, and help with this important citizen science project.
This event will be held in the Morrell Meeting Room at the Curtis Memorial Library.
The Maine Bird Atlas Workshop is a Spring Birding Extravaganza Event. Spring Birding Extravaganza is a free series of birding events held in partnership with Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and Harpswell Heritage Land Trust. Read more about this annual series at btlt.org/spring-birding-2019.
