Volunteers for Restoration Monitoring Wanted

ODFW and the City of Eugene are seeking volunteers to assist with breeding-bird surveys and grassland-bird monitoring on restoration projects south of Fern Ridge Reservoir, specifically along Nielson and Cantrell Roads. Ideal volunteers should have significant bird identification experience, both by sight and call, with grassland birds, waterfowl, and other associated species found in the Willamette Valley. We also want general observations by birders to provide usage information about the sites.

Links to information and maps of the monitoring sites are on the LCAS website: www.laneaudubon.org/node/556.

Surveys will begin in April and continue through June. If you’re interested, please contact Chris Vogel at 541.935.2591 or christopher.m.vogel@state.or.us. Call soon to get on the schedule!
