Investigate the fall migration of birds through the lens of a citizen scientist. Participate in monitoring activities related to birds and discover how the data are utilized by ornithologists in their research. An indoor workshop will also demonstrate how your observaions-from a glance at the backyard feeding station to a month-long trip to a distant continent-can be important and useful contributions in understanding avian dynamics and shaping future conservation practices.
