Citizen Science: Bird Monitor


Project Description:

Join our Citizen Science team as a bird monitor! Bird monitors help CCPR obtain long-term monitoring data of bird populations in our 13 parks and 4 greenways. As a bird monitor, you will identify birds by sight and record data using the leading citizen science smartphone app for birds, eBird. eBird is out of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and allows your data to be used by not only CCPR, but at a national level. The data you collect will benefit both CCPR and the birds you are observing!


To become a bird monitor, you will apply to be a citizen scientist below. Once approved, you will receive your volunteer packet with everything you need to know about your monitoring program. To be a successful bird monitor, you need to have a love for nature, a passion for learning, and a keen interest in your area of monitoring (for example, birds). Experience birding is ideal.


We look forward to seeing you on our Citizen Science team!
