Maine Bird Atlas Training
with Doug Hitchcox
Location: Fields Pond
The Maine Bird Atlas is a project to survey and map the distribution and abundance of breeding and wintering birds in Maine. It is a joint effort between the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Maine Natural History Observatory, Maine Audubon, the Biodiversity Research Institute and the public. The project will run from 2018-2022 to enable conservationists and researchers to track changes in bird populations.
Birds are an excellent indicator of environmental health, allowing for an overall understanding of the environmental health of the State of Maine. This workshop will explain the importance of understanding bird populations, what bird populations indicate and how YOU as a citizen scientist can play role in this effort. Program is free, but pre-registration is required.
