Dear CT Birding Community,
Enjoy watching birds? Want to learn about creating bird habitat in your own backyard? Consider helping with bird monitoring at New Haven area Urban Oases.
Join Audubon Connecticut for an orientation at the Yale Peabody Museum on March 30th.
When: March 30th, 6:30-8:00 pm
Where: Room 110 of the Class of 1954 Environmental Science Center. This is the building directly behind the Peabody Museum at 21 Sachem St. Parking is available in Lot 22 adjacent to the Kline Geology Building.
More Info: As part of the New Haven Harbor Urban Refuge Partnership, habitat improvements are taking place at New Haven parks, schools and other urban green spaces that will benefit both birds and people. Native trees, shrubs, and flowers have been planted to provide cover, food, and habitat for wildlife and a place to learn, relax, and connect with nature for people. Audubon Connecticut has been working with Common Ground High School and the USFWS, to monitor insect diversity at these Urban Oases to determine whether habitat restoration is working. We are looking for help in monitoring birds at these sites. Volunteers can monitor at just one or many sites and make as many visits as time permits.
RSVP to Corrie at Cfolsom-okeefe at audubon.org. Coffee and snacks will be provided!
