Early Morning Birding

June 8 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

This event is hosted by the Chelan Douglas Land Trust

Would you like to spend a weekday morning hiking, viewing wildlife, wildflowers, and snow-capped mountains, while being part of a small team collecting bird species data?  Community Science Projects are collaborations between scientists and volunteers that expand opportunities for scientific data collection and help answer real-world questions. Learn more about becoming a CDLT citizen scientist volunteer by contacting Conservation Fellow, Susan Ballinger asusan@cdlandtrust.org or call 509-667-9708. Please note contact Susan by cell phone 24-hours ahead (509-669-7820) to confirm, because changing weather conditions can result in cancelling the route.

CDLT is recruiting volunteers to help with two once/month bird monitoring projects.

  1. Mountain Home Preserve eBird Monitoring Project, prior  and after forest health thinning projects designed to restore open ponderosa-pine forest and to reduce future wildfire risks.  Meeting at the Safeway store in Leavenworth, or Susan will pick up carpoolers in Wenatchee at the Penny Road Park and Ride. We walk a 2.2-mile route, stopping at 5 points to conduct 10-minute counts. 2022 Dates: March 28 (7:00am-11am), April 20 (6:00am-10:00am), May 11 (6:00am-10am), June 8 (6:00am-10:00am).  July-October dates To Be Determined.
  2. Independent volunteers are invited to do the CDLT eBird monitoring project at Horse Lake Preserve, and then share data with CDLT.  Contact Susan Ballinger (susan@cdlandtrust.org) to learn more. The project goal is to learn about bird use with a variety of habitats that included areas burned in 2012 and 2015 wildfires.
