Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey – Fall 2017
Oct 15, 2017 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
and Once on Oct 15, 2017
The Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey for the fall of 2017 will be taking place on 3 dates and in and around several different locations in the Columbia Wetlands:
- Radium Hot Springs
- Lake Windermere
- Columbia Lake
‘Citizen-scientists’ are needed to conduct the surveys in these areas.
A major goal of the Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey is to collect baseline data necessary for achieving Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) status for the Columbia Wetlands; data you collect may be used to help designate the Columbia Wetlands as an IBA!
A limited number of high quality optical gear sets can be lent to participants in need. Free in-class training sessions will occur in September in both Golden and Invermere, conducted by Wildsight.
If you are interested in participating in the CWWS or would like to know more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 250-344-5530.
